A Snowy Christmas Scene – Inky Paws 161


Hello and welcome back!

Are you ready for the holidays? I’m definitely not, but this new Inky Paws Challenge had me feeling a little more festive!

When I saw the colors for this challenge, I knew immediately I wanted to use the new Holiday Home Stamp Set from the most recent Newton’s Nook release! To start, I stamped and colored a couple of the images from the Holiday Home Stamp Set using my Copic Markers in these colors:

Dark Reds: R29, R19, R08, R05

Light Reds: R08, R05, R02, R00

Dark Green: G29, G17, G15

Light Green: YG17, YG23, G12, YG11

Brown: E15, E13, E11, E50

Grey: W8, W6, W5, W3, W2

Next, I cut out my images using the coordinating dies, as well as cutting a few hills out of white card stock using the Land Borders Die Set. To add some depth to the hills, I ink blended a little bit of Salvaged Patina Distress Ink at the tops of the hills. I also ink blended Salvaged Patina onto a 4 x 5.25 inch white panel to create my sky. To create some snow in the sky, I splattered some Perfect Pearls mixed with water.

To assemble my card, I stamped the sentiment “wishing you peace and joy this holiday season” in black ink on the bottom hill. Then, I popped up my images with foam tape and adhered it to my scene. Lastly, I added a little glitter to the snow of the stamped images.

If you are inspired by the Inky Paws Challenge, you can enter through November 19 for a chance to win a $20 voucher to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!
