Hope you don't mind another card with Rubbernecker's "Zac" (SKU 596-01) on it. He is a cutie, after all.
I got the idea from two actual Christmas cards I received this holiday season...both which were long, tall cards that spelled the word "SNOW" on them. One of the cards used a snowman for the letter "O". So, I guess you can say I am CASE-ing my mail now.
To make this card, I stamped the image of Zac onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Marvy black dye. I colored the image with Copic markers. Then, I proceeded to color over Zac and his bird friends with a Versamarker and used clear embossing powder to heat emboss over the image. This created a mask.
I then proceeded to brayer the following dye inks onto the cardstock to create the sky and horizon line (which was made with a torn Post-It note): SeaShells Seashell Pink, Vivid Bermuda Blue, Adirondack Sail Boat Blue, and Adirondack Stonewashed. I added some Crystal Stickles at the horizon line. I then sprayed the entire card with Tsukineko's Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz.
With my Cricut and the "George and Basic Shapes" cartridge, I cut out the letters of S-N-and-W using blue cardstock. I placed these letters onto the scene, spelling "SNOW", allowing Zac to be the letter "O".
Using Copic Opaque White and a paint brush, I added snowflakes to the scene, and painted some fallen snow on the letters. The card is frame with white and blue cardstock.
A sheer white ribbon and a snowflake brad complete the card.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I have another card in my mind using Zac...and so I'm thinking why put away these inks and the image before I make it? Check back real soon...providing that I pull it off, it will be my warped sense of humor at work again.
