Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base
in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of
cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take
one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the
middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!

Lay the card on your table and apply purple tape so that about half of it is on the card. Apply to the perimeter of the card.

Place the hillside stencil where you would like it and tape down the stencil.

Apply the gouache colors that you want to use to a palette. I used a large acrylic block. Using the largest flat brush from the set, brush on black gouache to create the hill. Allow to dry and remove the stencil. Flip the stencil and use it to mask the hill you just created.

Clean the brush and apply the colors you have for the sky. I started with yellow, then purple, and blue. I spritzed it with water when it got a bit dry and harder to brush. Allow to dry or dry with a heat tool. Once it’s dry you can go back in and touch up. I added some white and some black, drying between applications. Mix some white with water and with a large round brush flick onto the card to create stars. Dry.

Using the VersaFine Clair black ink, stamp the Jumbo Pine Branch, Mini Holly Leaf, Tiny Berries, and Tiny Pine Cone. Stamp the sentiment in the same ink. Let it dry. Remove the stencil and tape. It may help to heat up the tape first.

If you decide to create this on black cardstock, create the card border by using a white Uni-Ball Signo pen.
