Today it is my turn to share a second project on the Countryview Challenge blog, - another Christmas card I'm afraid to say
a video where Ken demonstrates how it works:
For my project I started by cutting 4 of the cabinet cards with the small die inside to create a frame. I cut them from cereal packets, so the frame would be sturdy and have some depth. I glued them together, gave them a coat of gesso and then added Picket Fence Distress crackle paint. When everything had dried I coloured it and a backing piece with the new Distress Stains. I used Brushed Pewter and Faded Jeans, plus a tiny bit of Picket Fence.
Sparkle and Shine was added by covering everything in Mat medium and then sprinkling with Clear Rockcandy Distress Glitter.
I adhered the frame to a card blank, inked with a mix of Gathered Twigs and Walnut Stain DI and then stamped one of the stamps from the Christmas Nostalgia set around the edges, also in Walnut Stain.
I embellished with some branches from the Holiday Greens, coloured with Iced Spruce and more glitter.
