Hello everyone! Bonnie here from BONNIECAROLLEE MAKES CARDS. I absolutely adore the sweet mice in Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree! I have created three mini vignettes in a slim line format to showcase these cuties. Dig out the masking paper for these one layer scenes!
- An oversized panel of Bristol Smooth card stock was ink blended with Distress Oxide inks Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina and Spun Sugar using a Life Changing Blender Brush.
- Slim Line Snowball Fight Stencil was used to create a delicate, snowy backdrop for the vignettes. Paper Glaze Velvet Winter Snowfall was applied with a mixed media spatula. The panel was dried completely and trimmed down to 8 1/4” by 3 1/4”.
- The mice from Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree and the trees from Scene Building Winter Wonderland Trees were stamped on masking paper and cut out.
- The scenes were stamped on scalloped squares from the Slim Line Stitched Rectangles and Alpha Die Cutting System.
- To give the illusion of a frame around the scenes, the scalloped edge was masked with Post It Note Tape.
- When creating a one layer scene, the images that are in the foreground, the mice, were stamped first and masked. The trees in the background were then stamped and also masked in preparation for the final stamping of snowy texture using Scene Building: Winter Scenery. The video tutorial is helpful if you are not familiar with one layer stamping.
- Post It Note Tape was used to mask off the horizon and the skies were inked with a blending brush using the same inks used on the stencilled backgroundl.
- A fine blender brush was used to add Tumbled Glass to the lines of the textured snow.
- After removing just the mask on the horizon, the panels were spattered with Dr. PH Marten’s Bleed Proof White using a fan brush. I ddin’t want spatter on the images as they still needed to be coloured. After the spatter was applied, the rest of the masks were removed.
- The images were Copic coloured: Mice - N6, 4, 2, R20, Santa Suit - R29, 24 and Trees - YG93, 91
- A silver gel pen added a touch of shimmer to the lines of the textured snow.
- The stencilled panel was adhered to a black matted card base measuring 8 1/2” by 3 1/2”.
- Each vignette was stacked on two additional scalloped square die cuts.
- The vignettes were spaced out evenly and adhered to the card.
- The sentiment was stamped with hybrid black ink and adhered to the third vignette.
