Santa’s Magic

This amazing card by Pauline features our SANTA CLAUS and chimney stamp, TIME TUNNEL stencil and a sentiment from our SENTIMENTAL CHRISTMAS set.

[Tutorial} The superb background was achieved by having two pieces of watercolour card ready, placing the stencil onto one piece, sprinkling yellow Brusho powder paints over it, and gently spritzing with a fine water mist, lifting the wet stencil off, flipping it over then placing it onto the other piece of card, pressing gently, then remove. [Whilst the two pieces of card are drying, wash and dry the stencil]. 
Next take the first piece of card, place the stencil on again, but move it around, so that the yellow part is hidden by the stencil, this time sprinkle blue Brushos onto the stencil, spritz again with water, take the stencil off, flip it over and place it on the second piece of card, but this time showing the yellow, this gives you two backgrounds, which will be slightly different. The background Pauline used for this card was the second one, onto this some extra chunky white embossing powder was sprinkled, and heated from underneath to look like falling snow. 
Pauline stamped Santa and chimney onto some Bockingford 300gsm hot pressed water colour card, then coloured them both with Zig Clean Color Brush Pens, and fussy cut them. They were attached to the background with 3D glue gel, adding some gauze as chimney smoke. The sentiment was stamped in black, matted and adhered to the card, then using some Cosmic Shimmer dries white glue, Pauline sprinkled glitter onto it while wet, to make snow on the roof and chimney.
