Tim Holtz Merry Moose Christmas Card

And another one for the Build Your Stash Holiday Cardmakers blog hop. This moose is such a fun one and I finally got it out and used it.

Tim Holtz Alpine

I die cut out all the pieces using two die cut sets by Sizzix/Tim Holtz. I inked up some of the pieces around the edges and some over the whole die cut. For the mountains I added a bit over the top to tone down the off white. As you can see these are paper piecing dies.

The background I am pretty please with. It came last. I ink blended using Faded Jeans and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide inks. Then I put a bit of Picket Fence Distress Paint on my mat and added a bit of water. I used a good old sponge and lightly tapped it on the background. I also splattered a bit of the white.

The sentiment is stamped.

Supplies:

  • Distress Oxide Inks
  • Distress Picket Fence Ink
