Here is Christmas card number two. I spent entirely too much time with this one but since it was all new to me I wanted to go slow. I learned something along the way. Never crease the card before using the Distress ink for the sky because your masking will never be quite right and you'll see a gap.
I tore some post it notes to create a hill and then did the Distress ink sky. After it was dry I used my snow fall stencil from Simon Says Stamps to create a snowy sky. The birch tree die with the cardinals is Impression Obsession as is the bunny. The banner die is Simon Says Stamp and the sentiment Gina K. Design.
I had a lot of fun with the masking and distress inking. Usually I get stress myself because the tool you use to blend the ink always seems to leave a circle of too dark color. I used a lighter touch and started way off the paper on my mat.
