VIDEO | MFT Simple Snowy Backdrop with Stencils and Non-Traditional Colours

Hello there, I am over on the My Favourite Things YouTube Channel today, sharing a card using stencils to create a simple snowy backdrop, along with non-traditional colours. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by creating the background. I placed the MFT Rectangle Extraordinaire Stencil on top of a panel of white cardstock, securing in place with low tack tape. I then placed the MFT Drifts & Hills Stencil towards the bottom to create the illusion of a snowbank for my characters to stand on. 

Inside the window I created, I blended Distress Oxide Inks. I used (bottom to top) Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo and Dried Marigold. Before removing the stencils, I splattered on Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White for snow. I removed the stencils and let the panel sit to dry. 

I stamped the image from the MFT Jingle Hugs Stamp Set on to white cardstock with MFT Extreme Black Ink. I coloured the image with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and then die cut it out using the MFT Jingle Hugs Die-namics

I stamped the sentiment from the set on to the panel and then adhered it on to an A2 white card base with tape runner. The image was popped on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added Black Glaze Pen to the reindeer's eyes and Tonic Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the bells and the reindeer's nose. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:
