Top 100 Christmas Samples 18 - 23

 Good evening everyone, tonight and tommorrow I shall share extra samples with you so  next week I can fit in the Christmas cards I have been making for this year over the last couple of weeks using some if not all of the new stencils now available at Imagination Crafts. Tonight's samples are created with some Christmas Picture stencils.

 18, The clearing stencil, using the same technique as last nights cards for the back ground, this was done in two stages masking out the trees at first and used stencil paint jet black for the stag , then when that was dry mask out the deer and use Gunmetal grey Sparkle Medium for the trees  by adding puffa silver glitter on them and whit fluffy stuff with diamond glitter on the ground at the base of his feet,makes it look a frosty morning, the tag and ribbon from the Snowy set. I've the mounted on black glossy card .
19, Snowy Village Stencil, use the stencil on two bases, one blue one white I think this white was actually glittercard when both are dry  cut away the sky area from the white, then match up over each other to reveal the back sky and the front one snowy, ok while i was doing that on acetate I've used the snow flakes from snowy park Stencil across the middle when you tuck in the acetate, it will look like it's snowing, to finish wrap the ribbon.

20,This is the night version of the sample above
 21, Hanging Bauble Stencil, on glossy card using versa mark sponge through the stencil lift away the stencil and sprinkle with mica powders, I choose the blue and purple tones, buff and set with hair spray, repace the stencil over the images again and use a seperate sponge and pick up a little sparkle medium I''ve used silver  and dab and swirl some all over gently and fairly quickly use silver Sparkle medium also for the sparkles and tops of the baubles with a spattular, to finish add silver ribbon to top right corner. mounted onto lilac satin card stock then onto the card.
 22, Roof tops Stencil this was the the same technique, I did for the baubles only this time was with copper golds and blue mica powders and Gold shimmer Sparkle medium,for the dabbing, then simply mat and layer on gold the black card before attaching to the card.this effect is really cool It really does look like the night sky and the glow of the moon, sprinkling the magic of christmas ...I do love this technique so effective ....
23, Bethlehem, I prepared the back ground first by using the versamark ink pad all over the white card stock add copper and gold mica as above from side to side really cover the whole area, buff and spray with hairspray, once dry use jet black stencil paint over the stencil, I've tied the ribbon as a sash and added curled wire,
