Reverse Confetti December Creative Hop!


Hello there!  It's the 8th of the month, and that means it's time for the Reverse Confetti Creative Hop!  For my card today, I did one of my favorite techniques - colored pencil on kraft cardstock!

To create my card, I started off with a piece of kraft cardstock cut to 4" x 5.25".  I masked off the top 2/3 of the panel, and added a blue background using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and splattered the background with white acrylic paint.  Then I reversed the mask and added white pigment ink to the bottom of the panel.  I stamped a few of the images from the adorable Polar Party stamp set, and colored them with my Polychromos colored pencils before diecutting them with the coordinating Polar Party Confetti Cuts dies.

I popped the images up with foam tape, and stamped a few of the snowflakes from the set above the critters.  Under then, I stamped a sentiment from the Sparkle & Shine Sentiments stamp set.  Before popping the panel up on an A2 card base, I added a strip of polka dot paper from the Winter Solstice paper pad.  To finish off my card, I added white gel pen accents.
