One Layer Christmas Card Challenge #5

It's challenge time over at One Layer Christmas Cards again and this time the twist is something that we all love. Especially, for Christmas cards!

Glitter!  Glitter and Christmas cards go together like bread and butter, in my opinion.  :-).  Once again I decided go non-traditional in my colour scheme but rather than going bright and bold I went with soft and monochromatic instead.  And of course a touch of glitter.  Check it out...

So I create my scene by masking off my rectangle and sponging on some black and grey inks on my grey card base.  I stamped the branches stamp (Penny Black) in grey and then black.  I added some more sponging of black ink in the bottom corner and a little bit of purple and blue sponging to the sky.  I added some white on the branches to mimic snow with a white gel pen and then splattered some white paint all over.  I removed the mask and made a silver glitter tape (Darice) frame by trimming my tape in narrow strips.  Then I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.  I love how this scene turned out.  Like a misty, snowy night during the holidays.  :-)

I hope you will all join us in this fun challenge.  Please come visit the OLCCC blog and check out the awesome glittery projects by the other DT members too.
