Playing along with The Paper Players sketch challenge this week. This ended up being a great sketch for a Winter themed tree I had been working on. I have to say this card just makes my heart happy. I hope you all enjoy it.
Over the weekend I was using my water Spritzters that have been sitting in the drawer for a hot minute. I added some water and used my re-inkers to add color. Now, I used Night of Navy, which came out a beautiful shade of purple, and Polished. I am still playing with the mix but pretty sure it is going to take a lot of drops to make it Night of Navy. I did spritz the two colors onto the Fluid 100 watercolor paper that Stampin’ Up offers and I really like the way it spread around. I let it dry overnight, I probably could have used my heat tool to dry it, but I was really just playing around to see what I might get and was not in a rush.
I used the Christmas Tree Dies that will be released on August 3, 2021, to die cut the tree. That added a bit of Basic White Splatter using my water painter and re-inker. when I finally decided on the card I wanted to do I cut a piece of Basic Gray and splattered it with the same process. The Basic Black layer has a bit of a different speckled look, I used the heat embossing powder to get that look. Just sprinkled a bit on and hit with the heat tool.
The sentiment I used came from the Stars are Shining Stamp set in the upcoming catalog release. I thought it was just perfect for this card! A few strips of DSP(one of those cool SAB items you can earn with a $50.00 purchase) to stay in line with the challenge and this card looked great. All of these layers were added to a Gray Granite Card Base. Then I decided it needed a few sequins, then the card was done. I could not/would not have done this card any differently. It makes me think of all the possibilities of winter.
