I have a little bright and cheerful Christmas scene to share today....
The back and base of my scene are Tando chipboard panels. The back is full size, the base I have chopped up, its probably about half the size of the back. I covered them with gesso, then used acrylic drawing ink as my colour. Simply dripped onto a craft sheet and applied with a sponge. White brayered layers, more ink, stamping and some clear gesso stencilled stars in there too!
UTEE to give the snow splatter look!
My tree is also coloured with acrylic drawing ink. Top tip whilst doing this is to spray with water first, then the ink disperses so much better! This IS really messy, but the huge plus point is that acrylic ink comes off your hands easily with a little scrubbing. If I had done this with dye inks my hands would have been bright purple for days!
distress glitter over the top for a cool contrasting look!
The base was coloured in exactly the same way as the back. I joined the two together, then glued down the tree. I added my Rub On phrase to some white card, then cut it out and used it banner style by the tree...
