Today I'm sharing another card using the brand new collection from Craft Consortium 'It's Snome Time' collection (in partnership with Helz Cuppleditch). The collection launches on Create & Craft TV today time at 4pm (UK time), the products can also be purchased in crafts both here in the UK and in the USA. The collection contains fabulous stamps, a 12" x 12" paper pad, decoupage set and embellishments of Snomes (snowy gnomes) and their friends.
For my card today I've coloured Mr Snome and friends with pencils onto Neenah card, with a stencilled frosty scene behind him.
The links to the new products can be found below, or you can also go to the Craft Consortium's website using this link here. Why not sign up for update to product launches while you're there.
I covered the front of a 7" x 7" card blank with a piece of dark red paper from the pad. Next I stamped Mr Snome and his reindeer friend onto desert storm Neenah colouring card and die cut it into a square. I stamped the image again onto masking paper, fussy cut it out and then covered the image with it.
Using a forest scene mask I covered the top portion of the square and image. I created another mask by cutting out a piece of copier paper to size and adding a slight curve in it, I covered the bottom section of the square with it. I added white distress ink over the trees mask several times to really make them white, then added another mask over the top to add my snowdrops. The bottom paper mask was removed and white ink was added to the area as well. When everything was dry, the masks were removed and cleaned. Blue and grey pencil was used on the top of the white ground area to pull it away from the white trees, and then just beneath the snome and toadstools to create shadow. Glitter was added along the edge of the trees and along the icy ground and below the snome.
The images were coloured using Prismacolor pencils and the white pencil from my Caran D'ache set. When the image was finished, dot were added to the sky and the snomes gown using a white pen. The completed image was then added to a square die cut from white card, the topper was attached to the card front using foam pads.
To complete the card I added twine and one of the charms, plus a few enamel dots from the collection.
