Faux tearing technique for the ILWS challenge

Our technique challenge this month over at In Love With Stamping is:

faux tearing

and I've used it as a main element in this christmas card:

Stamp sets: Sparkly and Bright, Sparkling
Cardstock: Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Marina Mist, Whisper White Craft, Garden Green, Real Red, Early Espresso, Versamark
Punch: Scallop Oval
Other: White EP, Fine Galaxy Glitter, Dazzling Diamonds

The card blank is Marina Mist A6 landscape and was matted direct with a layer of Night of Navy. I tore a couple of sticky notes and used them to mask the Whisper White layer before brayering with Marina Mist ink. Keeping the mask in place I then used the Sparkling wheel with Whisper White Craft ink to wheel across the brayered area. After removing the mask I used a glue pen to draw along the "snowline", create snowmounds and dot all the snowflakes, then added Dazzling Diamonds. This scene was adhered direct to the card front. The christmas tree, Santa and Rudolph were stamped out with Garden Green, Real Red and Early Espresso respectively onto Whisper White card and then were cut out. Glitter was added to the top of the tree, Santa's hat and Rudolph's nose and they were all popped up on dimensionals in the scene. The sentiment was stamped in Versamark onto Night of Navy card and heat embossed with White EP before punching out with the Scallop Oval and popping up on dimensionals on the card front.

Thanks for stopping by.
