Reindeer Landscape (posted by Claire)

Good morning, Claire here with a quick and easy card made using stamps from the beautiful new stamps Reindeer Landscape , distress inks and distress markers.

I began by stamping the focal image with Timber Brown Stazon ink, next I stamped the trees to either side of the image. I extended the hills with a dark brown Graph'It Marker and added some depth and shadow with distress markers in Tumbled Glass and Pumice Stone. I added some platinum stickles to the baubles on the tree and once that was dry I used distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken Chine and Walnut stain around the edge. I matted the image on white card, then dark brown card and popped it on an 8x8 card blank

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you're enjoying all the gorgeous new stamps

  4. This reminds me of one of Paul Nash's paintings. An absolutely intriguing idea with the way that the reindeer panel looks as if you can walk through it into the snow scene but at the same time there is the ethereal effect of the reindeer image appearing almost translucent yet solid at the same time. Super.
