Hearts Come Home with Brusho Background

I was originally going to include this card in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Lisa Curcio but then realised that it bore a marked resemblance to this card that I made last year!

With the benefit of the Brusho Crystals for the background and the Frost White Shimmer Paint, I like this one better though!

A single layered Christmas Card with a Brusho sunset background and stamped black silhouettes

This is a single layer card using Shimmery White Cardstock.  I carefully masked the edges before I started the background, to leave a nice white frame.

Once the background was dry and I had removed the masking, I stamped the houses, trees and Santa with black ink.  TIP:  I used my Stamparatus when stamping so that I could re-ink and re-stamp as many times as necessary to obtain the ink coverage and depth of colour that I wanted.

I then used the same method to stamp the moon and stars with Frost White Shimmer paint.

With a small brush, I painted the chimney smoke with some Frost White Shimmer Paint.

I then used a black Stampin' Marker to connect the row of houses with a hill.

The Merry Christmas greeting is from the Star of Light stamp set.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
