CHRISTMAS CARAVAN

Hello.

Here's my last Christmas card of this season,
and it's for my husband.

This year we bought a caravan.
We've had some really fun trips in it and been so lucky with the weather.

Maybe next year we'll get to re-create this snow scene somewhere :-)


I started by distress inking a background sky.
Then, I added a stitched border, with some die-cut trees and a fussy-cut caravan.
The little, individual fairy lights were so tricky to stick on  - they are such tiny pieces.
To finish, I splattered on some white acrylic paint for the snow.

Challenge



I've used distress inks on the background, and versacolor ink for the trees,
Copics on the caravan and the fairy lights, and acrylic paint for the snow.

Supplies
Caravan, from Avery Elle, Home Sweet Home
Trees from MFT stamps Oh Christmas Tree, Rectangular Stax 1
Fairy Lights are Memory Box Dies, 
Distress Ink, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky
Versacolor Turquoise and Cocoa

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS

Hello.

Here's a new home card for those crazy enough to move house
in the middle of winter.
(you know who you are).

I had fun with this card.
Imagine being all warm and cosy in your new home with the snow falling thick and fast outside.
Perfect.


I started by embossing the sentiment and using distress ink for the background,
then added the stitched hills and other elements.

The snow splatter was added last, so that it covered the trees and home.
I'm not great at that splatter stuff, but I love how this turned out.
