I was in a Holiday Cards mood the other day! That, and the fact that I’ve had this Altenew set for so long and haven’t used it yet. So I pulled it out and got to playing! The Altenew Winter Cardinal stamp set and coordinating die set (they come as a bundle, too) create such a beautiful image, and they’re so easy to use! The first layer of the bird image is stamped with Altenew’s Blush ink. The 2nd layer is Altenew’s Rouge ink. For the 3rd laye, first I tried is Altenew’s Velvet ink; it didn’t have enough contrast for me, so I switched over to their Lava Rock color. The tree branch is Altenew’s Dark Chocolate ink, and the berries are Altenew’s Crimson ink. For the background sky, I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink with my Round Mini Ink Blending Tool, then I placed my Falling Snow Stencil over the paper, and applied White Embossing Paste over the entire stencil with my palette knife. The final touches were adding Glossy Accents on the berries, and Pretty Pink Posh Cupped 4mm Marshmallow sequins in the sky. Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!
