For today's Kitchen Sink Stamps sponsored design I have created this snowy night scene using images from the following KSS sets:
Tiny Norway Pine Multi Step Clear Stamps
(this set is no longer available but Minnesota Norway Pine Tree is)
These are the steps I followed to create the night sky:
1. Punch a circle and attach it to the white 6 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch panel.
2. Brush the top 3/4 of the panel with Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire.
3. Brush in a little Distress Oxide Black Soot.
4. Flick on tiny droplets of water and dry with a heat gun.5. Before adding the snow, I stamped the 3 Norway Pines.
6. Water down some white acrylic paint and flick on the falling snow.
7. Remove the moon mask and stamp Santa.
To complete the card, I used watered down Chipped Sapphire to paint the tree shadows and tore an addition snowbank on which to stamp the sentiment. I edged the top of the snow banks with some clear Stickles and called the card done.
Should you need it, here is the Color Recipe for the Norway Pines:
Layer 3 Memento Espresso Truffle
Layer 2 PTI Ocean Tides
Layer 1 Stampin' Up Old Olive
Santa and the Sentiment were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black
