Country Christmas Card

I love this truck stamp for a Christmas card!

I started with a grey and white gelli printed background.  Then stamped my truck and snowflakes that were heat embossed with grey.  I did some shading on the truck with a grey marker. The only pop of color is the trees and wreath. I'm loving the snowy look!!

I'm entering Craft Stamper Magazine November Challenge: Anything goes!
The stamps are from Unity Stamp Company.

Unity Christmas Wishes

I love the techniques I used on the card. The outcome is so soft and beautiful!

I wanted to join the challenge at Unity which was using multiple shades of grey.  That was my jumping board.  I did several backgrounds using my gelli plate and white and black acrylic paint.

Then I used Unity Stamps to create the scene.  Snowflakes were spaced out and embossed with crystal effects.  They really shine in person!  My Unity lady was embossed in silver.  I colored her with markers smearing the ink out so I was able to use just a small amount and "hint" at the color of her clothing. 

I stamped the Christmas wish on vellum and finished my card.
