Ready, Set, Snowboard!

Hello, Tallie here. I won't get to visit the slopes this year so here's a frosty themed birthday card featuring the MFT Ready, Set, Snow stamp set. This one is for my brother, who unlike me, will shortly be visiting the snowy slopes!

I started with the background for this card, blending on some Distress Inks in Broken China, Peacock Feathers and Faded Jeans. To add many layers of snow, I used a combination of white paint and a toothbrush, and a white gel pen. This one turned out looking more like a night sky, so maybe this bear is going for a night board? :)

On another panel, I stamped out the bear, the snow puff and a couple of the trees with some MFT Extreme Black Ink. I used some Post-It Notes to mask the smaller tree so I could stamp the larger tree behind and a black pen to add some of the extra lines. I then coloured these in with my alcohol markers, sticking to warm greys for the bear and blue-greens for the snow.

I fussy cut around the bear, trees and the slope so I could mount the scene on some foam tape and add some dimension. I stamped out the 'HAPPY BRRRTHDAY' sentiment from the Ready, Set, Snow set onto the panel before I mounted it to the card base background.

A few last little touches with a white get pen to add some details to the scarf and board, and some Glossy Accents for the goggles finishes it off.

Thanks for reading, catch you next week.
