Hi all and welcome! I'm the sketch hostess over at Freshly Made Sketches this week and I hope my sketch will provide a starting point for some amazing cards!
For my card, I wanted to play with an ink-blended and Perfect Pearls background as well as some new silhouette dies I'd just received.
The background was created with Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot Distress Inks and then I brushed on some Blue Patina Perfect Pearls powder before splattering it with white gouache. After I'd die-cut the black elements, I also splattered on some white gouache. The snowy hills was die-cut from white cardstock and I stamped one of my favourite Christmas sentiment stamps from Papertrey Ink.
I adhered some of the silhouette elements to the front and back of the snowy hills and some directly to the ink-blended background panel, then I used foam tape to pop up the hills.
I'm linking this up to the Christmas creations challenge at Sweet Stampin' and the Winter/Holiday challenge at Time Out.
