SDC 225; Alpha

Kim is our hostess this week over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge and is call for creations with an alpha letter made of Stampotique stamps.

My "C" is for Christmas and filled with holiday inspired images.  I traced a "C" stencil on sticky paper that was applied to white card stock.  I used and x-acto knife to create a mask to protect the background and stamped images in the opening of the C.  I left the mask on to color, creating harder edges for contrast.  The images are colored with Copics and layers of Polychomos pencils. 

I thought the image seemed a little too stark on the white background so I trimmed the letter out and adhered it to scrapbook paper.  Matted and framed on cardstock.  Faux gem snowflakes were added to creak up the background and add shimmer.

Stamps used in this card are:
