Best 2018

Let's Welcome 2018 with Excellent Health and Prosperity Wishes for everyone.

Hi there my crafty friends... I'm here to share my 1st Craftin Desert Divas card for 2018 with you.

I created this card for Craftin Desert Divas January Mood Board Challenge using Water Coloring Technique for the background.

Here is January Mood Board Photo Inspiration.

I hope you can join us at CDD Facebook Gallery for some crafty fun and of course crafty prizes.

Here is how I prepared my card.

Cutting my main panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and mountain range die from Scenery dies.  I also embossed the polar bear stamp from Chilly stamp and pretended that he's standing over the cliff.  

I used distress oxide inks as water color medium in iced spruce for the mountain range, lucky clover for the trees and vintage photo for the cliff.  To get the variation of green tones, I mixed lucky clover with abit of vintage photo for darker green.  For the cliff top, after I laid down vintage photo distress oxide ink and let it dried.  I then put thin layer of white paint on top and back again with vintage photo for some variation of brown.  

I did try to color the bear with iced spruce but it's blended too much and I didn't like it so I stamped him again, colored him with copic markers and fuzzy cut him out.

I put the bottom panel on form tape for dimension and adhered the sky down directly onto black card based.  I also cut the mountain snow caps dies from white card stock.  For sentiment, "the best" is from Wishful Thoughts stamp and hand written "2018".  I heat embossed it with white embossing powder on black card stock.

I also have a bonus card for you *lol* and I hope you like it :) I created similar scene but I water colored the mountain background with the same distress oxide inks.

And here is the closer look.

I Thank you so much for stopping by today and I wish you all a Wonderful 2018.
