A Merry Night of Time Travel {VLVS! Christmas Card Blog Hop}

Welcome to the Christmas season here on The Sparkling Gnome! We’re kicking it off with a Christmas card blog hop with Viva Las VegaStamps!

christmas card blog hop
I have created a fun little card to shine with Christmas spirit, without a single Christmas specific image! Today I am giving a shout out to Dr. Who…and thinking of how the TARDIS would look, sailing across a sky of Christmas stars, sending a Christmas greeting.
The background of my card was created by adding many colors of blue on my Gelli Plate, and then spreading with a brayer. When this was dry, giving splatters of white ink from 13 Arts, gave me a nice night sky to work with.
I painted the watercolored pine trees, fussy cut them out, and added them in layers. Each tree is topped with a star from the Stars 2 x 2 1/4, using gold ink from Imagine Crafts.
The whimsical  flying police box stamp is focus of this card, obviously. I decided to stamp it in several colors of blue, and then color with Sakura Gelly Roll pens, Faber Castell Design Memory Craft big brush pens, and fine line Sharpies; for pops of color. I wanted the TARDIS to be flying the Union Jack, so I stamped it using the union jack silhouette, and added it and the chevron banner stamp, using shimmering gold heavy embroidery thread….like they were being flown. The entire card was added in a layer to another white plain 4×6 card, which was watercolored to give a lighter background pop of color.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today. Please continue hopping, to see the amazing work of the other design team members. Here is the list….so keep on hopping, jingling and ringing your bells…because you could win a pound of rubber, or a grab bag of Christmas images!! Meeeeeerrrry Christmas! 🙂
