Have a Narly Winter!

What do you get when you combine Lawn Fawn's adorable Winter Narwhal stamp, Eyelet Outlet's colorful Snow Boot brads and a blendy, splashy Distress Oxide background? Probably something a bit like this:

First things first... to make the background, blend Squeezed Lemonade, Picked Raspberry and Broken China Distress Oxides in horizonal bands, allowing them to overlap and make some interesting shades of purple and orange in between. (Hint: Picket Fence Studio Blender Brushes make this soooooo easy!) When the entire panel is covered, flick a little bit of clear water on top and count to ten slowly, then blot. If necessary, you can repeat that last step a few times, until you get exactly the right level of splashiness.

 

 

 

Stamp the Winter Narwhal in Memento Tuxedo Black and color with your favorite medium. (I chose water-based markers with colored pencil shading.) Use the coordinating Winter Narwhal dies, or fussy-cut. Use nested star dies to cut a frame. Lawn Fawn's Cloudy Hillside Die Set also makes terrific ocean waves or snowdrifts! Cut three from LF Pearlescent Vellum and use one to make some waves for the narwhal inside the star frame.

 

 

Affix the other two vellum cuts to the bottom of the blended panel and set the Snow Boot Brads in a line. Stamp the sentiment on a little strip of white cardstock and trim into a flag. Adhere the framed narwhal to the card with tiny strips of foam tape; mat the whole panel on Silver Metallic Jewel Cardstock and mount on an A2 card made from Lawn Fawn's white Woodgrain Cardstock.

 

 

 

The hardest part might be deciding if you can actually bear to send the card and part with this adorable STAR-whal! ♥
