Welcome to Day 2 of SugarPea Designs 2014 Holiday Release - our LARGEST release yet and all just in time for the holiday crafting season!!
Yesterday we introduced Sugar Cuts, our brand new line of wafer-thin steel dies, together with a new line of clear stamps, Sweet Chic Collection. Today we are excited to sneak peek the adorable Lost Without You stamp set. I adore this image, and the sentiments Wendy has added are beautiful.
I really love how this card turned out. I only started creating backgrounds with distress inks this year (yep, I was very late to the "distres ink" party, lol!), but since then I have become a bit obsessed with it ... that and white heat embossing, lol! I trimmed a piece of white card and then got to work with my distress ink pads. The sky was created with (from dark to light) Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Broken China and Tumbled Glass, and then the grassy slopes were created with (from dark to light) Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters. I simply used a piece of torn paper for my mask and I love how it gives a more natural look to the slopes than using a die-cut curve (which I was initially going to use). I heat embossed the gorgeous sentiment and star from the stamp set in white, and then added some stars using a white gel pen - simple! I did add some shading underneath the shepherd and his sheep to "ground" them, as it looked a little like they were floating without it, lol!
