C24C - Christmas Landscape ...

... Good morning!! Hope you've all recovered from any Halloween celebrations you may have had. It was quiet in our village as we are in the middle of a "Firebreak" lockdown. Basically, that means people have been asked to stay at home. So we have! 

As it's the first of the month, it's time for our new challenge at Christmas 24 Challenge - C24C#21; we want to see Christmas Landscapes on your cards. Here's my take:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Alpine Christmas
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Gina K - Soft Stone, Slate, Stormy Sky, Christmas Pine, In the Navy, Whisper Amalgam; Verafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Card; Copic Markers; Glitter

I'm submitting this card to the current The Holly & The Ivy Christmas Challenge - H&ICC#82, where it's Anything Goes Christmas.

This is a one-layer card. I did lots of masking to create depth in the image. I started by stamping the trees, snowman and path at the bottom of the card. I covered this with a mask and stamped the Alpine lodge, covered this with a mask and then stamped the mountains. I started with the closest in darkest grey, covered with a mask, moved the stamp and used a couple of lighter shades of grey, masked them and finished with a very light grey. I added some chalets and trees behind the lodge. After removing the masks, I coloured the lodge and trees at the front of the card with Copic markers. I used a glue pen to lay down some glue and then added glitter - lots of glitter. I finished the front with a simply Christmas greeting at the top of the card. Here's a close-up of the card to show the sparkle from all that glitter:

Well, you can just about see the sparkle in the photo. In real-life it shimmers so much!! Don't forget to visit our blog to see more inspiration cards from the rest of the team. I look forward to seeing your cards. Bye for now.
