Hi folks, welcome to this weeks creation for Tando. The theme is 'Make a Card'.
As we are all very aware, Christmas is just around the corner and yes, I've failed miserably at sticking to one of my New Years Resolutions which was to start making Christmas cards early in the year. OOOppppppssss... I'm ashamed to say this is my first official card for Christmas.
But anyway, I'm glad to say I'm very happy with it.
Here is my first official Christmas card and my creation for Tando...
I started with a 6 x 6 inch white super smooth piece of card.
I took the Tando Joined Snowflakes mask and laid it at an angle over the bottom of the card, then inked through it.
I randomly stamped sections of one of the stamps from Andy Skinner's Industrial Stamps set from Stampendous.
I then used the Bubbles mask from Andy Skinner and used DecoArt White Modeling Paste in random areas over the top of the Joined Snowflakes and Industrial stamping. I then used some wax to highlight the bubbles.
I took the Tando Mini's Music and painted them with white gesso. When they were dry I gently rubbed over some wax to give it a shimmer.
I then used the Tando Mini's Reindeers and painted them with DecoArt English Red Oxide. I finished them with a touch gold wax.
To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment from on to a separate piece of card. Then cut it out and roughed up the edges with a pair of scissors. I lightly inked the sentiment with and inked the edges darker and adhered with a foam pad.
Here is everything I used...
all which are available on the Tando Website.
