Doodling with Debby: Picture Book Christmas
Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Thanks for popping by today! Please read on below to see how Debby Hughes made this absolutely adorable Christmas card! Be sure to watch the video and enjoy!
Hello, it’s Debby here today with my monthly video feature, Doodling With Debby! I love the look of no-line colouring – stamping an image in a pale ink and then colouring, so the original line is no longer visible. Well, I’ve called today’s technique no-line die cutting.
In the same way as the stamping technique, no-line die cutting results in a coloured image without any black lines and the Picture Book die series from Simon Says Stamp are perfect for this.
I die cut the Picture Book Snowman, Picture Book Deer and Picture Book Santa from Neenah Solar White card and then coloured with Copic Markers. I had great fun colouring these die cuts with simple shading to bring them to life.
Once I’d coloured the pieces for each character, I glued them to a piece of white card and trimmed out before adding a pair of wiggle eyes. I rubbed Ranger Multi Medium Matte over Rudolph’s antlers and dunked them into a tub of Rock Candy Distress Glitter before adhering them to the back of the deer’s head with a glue dot. Also, I added Glossy Accents to Rudolph’s red nose. To dress up Santa and the snowman, I added Wink Of Stella glitter pen to their outfits.
I blended Lake Shores ink into the top of a panel of white card and splattered with perfect pearls solution and then white gouache before mounting the trio of characters with foam adhesive.
For the sentiment, I stamped, and white heat embossed the ‘Hope’ sentiment from the Stained Glass Greetings set three times and die cut with the matching die. I then trimmed out the ‘HO’ from the beginning of each die cut and mounted them below the three characters. I completed the sentiment by stamping a phrase from the Fa La La set in clear embossing ink on card coloured with a red marker and white heat embossed before trimming into a skinny banner.
I added the finished panel to a side folding Desert Storm card base.
Thank you for joining me today, and I’ll see you next time for Doodling With Debby!
