Pink Christmas by Erica

by studiokatia

Hi everyone!

Erica on the brand spanking new blog today, who else is excited about all this new-ness?

Today I have a very untraditional Christmas card for you. It’s all pink, pink, pink! Hot pink even. I’ve been in an ink blending mood recently and that’s how I made the background. I used Pickled Raspberry distress ink and just went to town with it. To frame the sentiment and the stamp I was going to use, I made it extra dark around the edges. Then I splattered water on the panel to create the dotted effect I so adore.

On copic friendly paper I stamped up the flamingo from the Pink Winter and to make it a little more festive, I also added a few little fun bits like reindeer antlers, a santa hat and christmas lights all wrapped around the body of the flamingo. Then I coloured him in using my Copics. Once I was happy with the colouring, I fussy cut the image out and set it aside.



Using the sentiment from the same stamp set, I stamped up ‘Pink Winter’ in VersaMark ink and sprinkled Puff Powder from WOW embossing powder before heating it up with my heat gun for that lovely snowy effect. I simply had to use the Snowflakes embellishments as well as some enamel accents in white to crate a snowfall around the sentiment and the flamingo. I also had to add some enamel accents under the flamingo because if it’s snowing, there should be some snow on the ground too, right? I popped another few snowflakes on top of a few random dots too just for extra pizzazz.



Once all the glue and enamel accents were dry, I adhered the finished panel to a card base and that was pretty much it! Ok, so it took a bit longer than it took you reading this post but you know, it’s not far off. By making several backgrounds in one go, you can save yourself a lot of time if you need to make more than one card.

Here is the full card and I hope I have inspired you to make some nontraditional Christmas cards this year!



That’s it from me for this time,

Happy crafting from Erica

You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I
to find this matter to be actually something that I think I might by
no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and
very huge for me. I’m having a look ahead in your next post, I will attempt
to get the cling of it!
