Christmas evergreen trees – SSS kit , Christmas card series #5 2014 stamping on kraft paper and masking technique
The last card for this week, I think I managed to get started. a good week, but all in all it will only get better from now on. This is an attempt to reproduce those old Christmas cards that look vintage and old.
For this to work i started with kraft card-stock. This usually darker color does not let the colors to shine. but if you use some white pigment ink at first the results are interesting. It does look like our trees have snow on them.
The trick is to mask off about half an inch on each side. Do your stamping first with white and them with a die ink, and to darken the kraft, use versamark ink,
