This Merry Moose card turned out almost exactly the way I envisioned it! Lookie:
I die cut the moose and 5 trees from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Kraft card stock and distressed it with a sanding block. Again, my Sakura Quickie Glue pen was really handy for attaching all the pieces along with my 2-way glue pen.
For the background, used my Life Changing Brushes to do a smooth gradation from Blueprint Sketch to Chipped Sapphire, speckling it with water drops and white Wink of Stella to make fat snowflakes.
I used Simon Says Stamps Stitched Slopes and Hills to create my ground to tuck my trees behind. I added a lot of white Wink of Stella to the trees, especially behind the moose so that he was more visible. I love the rough look of that; it really goes with the rustic feel. Because I used a bit of Tim Holtz Idealogy tape (the silver glimmer tape in one layer of the collar), I added a couple of dots of Nuvo Moonrise Glitter Crystal drops down in the corner to create my visual triangle.
The last thing I added was my greeting from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous’ Crazy Talk, stamped with Scrapbook.com’s white pigment ink. I love my Merry Moose card! It’s rustic and fun!
