Snow/Sky Background Tutorial

Hello everyone! It's my day to post at Peachy Keen Stamps and I am sharing a tutorial for a snow/sky background. 

Here is a pic of the card we will be making today.

Peachy Keen- PK-1443 Faceless Penguins
Chalk Ink in light blue 
Stamping blender brush
Scrap paper
Copic Markers

To start with the background, I stamped the tree from the Faceless Flake and Christmas Tree stamp set onto my card mat to the left side. I also hand cut a piece of white scrap paper for the stencil line for the snow. 
Place the scrap piece of white over your card in the center and ink up the blender brush with the chalk ink. Using circular motions, ink in the sky with the blending brush. It's ok to go onto the tree a little as long as you're using a light color.
When the sky is all inked in, remove the white scrap paper and there you have it! A snow/sky background!

Now you will color the tree on the background, and stamp and color the extra tree and penguin. Cut them out with scissors along with another piece of scrap white for the snow. This doesn't have to be perfect, snow comes in all shapes and sizes LOL! Do make sure it is the width of your card mat though. 
Ink the edges of your small snow piece with the blue and then you're ready to assemble.

I mounted the second tree, penguin, and snow on pop dots to give this card lots of depth. After it's all put together, the last thing to do is stamp on the sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments stamp  set. 

Here is the card all finished. 

I hope you all enjoyed my tutorial and will try this technique for yourself! 
Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping!

The tutorial is perfect. I wish more crafters shared how they made their projects in pictures. I am not a video person...I want a quick and easy set of directions just like this! :) Thanks!
