Good morning! I’m excited to be a stop on the Heffy Doodle release hop! Lesley has created an adorable holiday and critter release and I decided to kinda combine the two categories today to create a prehistoric holiday card! 😉
I just LOVE that little woolly mammoth from Prehistoric Pals! Isn’t he cute?! To start I stamped him on my card with intense black ink and masked him off with a post-it note. Then I placed the First Snow stencil over the panel and used the life-changing blender brushes to blend a soft pastel sky using spun sugar, shaded lilac, and blueprint sketch distress ink. I’ve gotta say…I did not want to like those brushes (I never particularly cared for the other blending brushes that were popular awhile ago) and I just figured they couldn’t do anything that my blending tools couldn’t do but I was WRONG! If you’re wanting to do more soft blends I can’t recommend them enough! 😉 Anyway, once I was done blending I applied a thin layer of moonstone nuvo glimmer paste over the stencil. I peeled up the stencil and let the paste dry.
Once the panel was dry I colored my woolly mammoth with copic markers and added a few accents with a white gel pen. Then I added a few accents to create snow on my background panel using cool grey copic markers. I added a little crystal glaze and then sprinkled the glaze with chunky and prisma glitter to create sparkly snowbanks. I stamped the sentiment from Whatcha Saying Now onto black cardstock with versamark, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, and popped it up with a little foam mounting tape. Finally I added a few snowflake sequins to finish the card!
