The Little Drummer Boy (stamped from Musical Season and die cut from Musical Instruments) is drumming along on top of EIGHT layers.


This project needed to have layers, because I chose the left row down in this week’s Tic Tac Toe challenge.


And, the Paper Players sketch was perfect for layering.


I started with a Thick Whisper White card base, and layered it with Basic Black, topped with Emerald Envy, and a smaller layer of Basic Black. Next, would be a layer of ink blending for the Tic Tac Toe challenge. 

I stamped three colors of ink (Tranquil Tide, Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist) on the Sheet Music background stamp. After making the impression on Whisper White cardstock, I cut a piece to fit the black layer.


The next layer would use more ink blending, and a stencil. I die cut a stencil from the Eclectic Layers set, and placed it on Glossy White paper. Using the same three colors as the Sheet Music, I dabbed the colors over the stencil with cotton saturated with alcohol. After it dried, I cut a rectangle to fit the black layer, and this was popped up on dimensionals.


This photo shows the gloss of the stencil layer, and the dimension.

 The sentiment, “Merry Christmas,” is from the Star of Light stamp set, fitting nicely in the die cut from Bunch of Banners. 


The Little Drummer Boy has a foot on the sentiment, making him the eighth layer. This was a fun card to make, especially with the inspiration from the two challenges.
