Winter Wonderland: Day 3
Looking to add an artistic touch to your holiday creations? Join us all this week as Heather takes us for a walk in a Winter Wonderland…
Masking, inking, and stamping… today’s “how-to” will have you ready to create your very own winter wonderland!
With a toothbrush or paintbrush, flick masking fluid over panel. Leave to dry for at least 20 minutes.
Punch a circle from a post-it note or masking paper and position in the sky. Cut a hill shape mask and position it half way down panel. Using a rubber brayer apply pink ink to sky area.
Brayer blue ink over the sky area.
Add a little more blue ink around edges with a sponge. Add a little more pink ink to suit your preference.
Stamp trees randomly with grey ink before moving either mask. These trees are in the background and do not need to be well defined.
At this point remove the circle mask to expose the moon (I forgot to do that in the tutorial photo and had to stamp a couple of twigs in later!) Move the hill mask lower and sponge blue ink along the edge and on the exposed snow bank but stop short of the horizon in order to keep it crisp and white.
Stamp two more trees in grey.
Move the mask again and sponge above it once again sponging up towards the top of the snow bank but stopping short of the white edge. Add a tree in black ink.
Finishing Touches: When the black ink is completely dry remove the masking fluid by gently rubbing across the panel with your fingers. Pop the panel up on dimensional tape and add sentiment.
