CAS Christmas Card Challenge April 2021 GD – Rainbow

Bonjour !

J’ai eu la chance d’être l’heureuse gagnante du défi CAS Christmas en février avec CETTE carte et aujourd’hui je suis très honorée d’être l’Invitée Créatrice de Loll et sa merveilleuse équipe pour le défi du mois d’Avril !

Hello !

I have been the lucky winner of the February challenge at CAS Christmas with THIS card and today I’m very honoured to be the Guest Designer for Loll and her wonderful team for the month of April !

Avec un tel thème, ce défi ne pouvait être animé que par ma chère ex-coéquipière, Trina! De son côté, elle ne sera pas surprise non plus que j’utilise un tampon de Gerda Steiner pour illustrer ce défi.

With such a theme, this challenge only could be hosted by my dear ex-teamy, Trina ! She will not be surprised either that I used a Gerda Steiner stamp to illustrate this challenge.

Voici ma carte / Here is my card

J’ai ce tampon depuis longtemps mais je ne l’avais encore jamais utilisé (quelle honte !), l’occasion parfaite de mettre plein de couleurs à cet adorable renne et son méli-mélo de guirlande et décoration de Noël !

I have this stamp in my stash for a long time but I’ve never used it yet (what a shame !), it is the perfect occasion to put a lot of colours to this adorable reindeer and its mishmash of garland and ornaments !

J’ai découpé un carré de papier blanc avec une matrice sur lequel j’ai tamponné l’image. Je l’ai masqué avec un post-it ainsi qu’avec un autre pour délimiter le sol du ciel.

I die cut a square of white card stock on which I stamped the image. I masked it with a post-it note as well as with another post-it to delimit the ground of the sky. 

Puis j’ai fait mon fond avec des encres Distress et j’ai coloré l’image avec des crayons de couleur.

Then I made my background with Distress inks and I coloured the image with colour pencils.

J’ai aussi vaporiser un peu d’eau pour faire la neige (ou les étoiles) puis j’ai mis du brillant sur le sol avec un pinceau Wink of stella.

I also sprayed a bit of water to make the snow (or the stars) and I put a layer of Wink of Stella for the shimmery of the snow.

Pour finir j’ai collé l’image sur la double carte, j’ai découpé (x2) un cadre blanc que j’ai mis autour et j’ai tamponné le sentiment.

To finish I flat adhered the image on the double white card, I die cut (x2) a white frame that I glued on top and I stamped the sentiment.

Et voilà ! J’espère que cette carte vous inspirera et que vous êtes prêts à venir jouer. Pour plus d’inspiration de l’équipe de design cliquez ICI. J’espère vous voir dans la galerie.
