Neutral Christmas

Will write this post later - gotta head out quickly now, but wanted to get my entry in to CASology :)

Right I am back now and can write my blog post properly! I hate having to go shopping after work, it really throws my routine off! I have the first of my Festive ATC collections to share with you today. This one is called Festive Cheer.

I went for a neutral colour scheme using stencils and GlitzCraft texture paste in sand and gold. I was quite surprised how well the gold worked as it had gone slightly solid in the tub, but it looks perfect on the ATC's.
For this first one I used a snowflake mask for the stencil side (it states stencil on the packaging, but it really is more of a mask). I wasn't sure how well it would work as I have not used the texture pastes often, however I was quite please with how it came out. I layered it on pretty thick, which I think gives a bit of a mixed media look to the ATC. To finished I simply added a die-cut sentiment in neutral tones.

For this second one I used a GlitzCraft stencil with the Gold paste only on the bells. As I wanted neutral colours I opted to add a real ribbon bow, rather than using the stencil one. To finish this CAS design I added a peel-off sentiment. The cheer was done using white rub-on letters, which I then coloured with peel-off markers.
This final ATC I created using the Christmas Tree from the same GlitzCraft stencil. I used the Sand for the main body of the tree and the Gold for the star and baubles. Again I used the peel-off letters to create the sentiment.

So obviously I am entering these into the challenge at CASology #267 Cheer but I would also like to enter them for the following challenges:
Country View #57 Stencils
A Snowflakes Promise #46 Anything Goes
ABC Christmas - X for X marks the spot (In the Christmas Tree)
