PaperArtsy Challenge : Gothic Card

Another PaperArtsy Challenge card for me : I was inspired by Liesbeth Fiddler's Gothic Card, but made mine into a Christmas card.

I followed her instructions, using Smoothy white stamping card, and painting it with Fresco Paints in Irish Cream, Nougat, Sky Blue and Pea Coat.
The front piece of card has more blue, and back piece more cream
I repeat stamped the buildings from Hot Pick 1110, and added Santa and his reindeer (a stamp I got as a freebie with an order - but I am not sure which company)
The background is stamped with a grunge snowflake  (Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous)

PaperArtsy Challenge : Helen Linfield

My card was inspired by the journal cover made by Helen Linfield

I painted my smoothy white stamping card with Chalk Fresco Paint. The stencil is Lin Brown's EBL 003, using Teal Fresco Paint.

The flowers are stamped from JOFY 23, and painted with Fresco Paints : Amethyst, Dolly Mix, Snowflake, Hey Pesto and Tinned Peas

Just a card

This background for this card was inspired by a masterclass article in an old Craft Stamper

I used distress inks, Tim Holtz Cargo stencil with Grungepaste, the circles are made using the bottom of a stick glue with black ink. Umbrella man is from a Tim Holtz die
