Merry & Bright Sillyscape



Today I am playing along with Case Study #66.  The challenge is to case this beautiful card from Krissi Ng.

I picked up on the snowy background, the buildings as a focal point, and the sentiment tag at the top of the card.  This seemed like the perfect opportunity to pull out one of the first stamps I ever got--an old favorite that has been neglected lately--my Sillyscape stamp from Hero Arts.


Sorry that this is not such a great photo--I think there was a reflection from the flash.  I started with SU Navy paper and stamped the Hero Arts Envelope background in white.  Then, I stamped and embossed Sillyscape in black, and stamped PTI Peace Be Still snowflakes in White.  I used a white gel pen on some of the windows and Gelly Roll Clear Star on some other parts.  In the photo, it looks yellow, but IRL it looks glittery.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Hero Arts: Sillyscape, Envelope, PTI:  Peace Be Still, Tiny Treats Christmas
Paper:  SU Navy, PTI Soft Stone, White
Other:  PTI Angled Label Die
Thanks for Visiting
