Hi All. Here I am again, two posts in two days, I'm not sure I will be able to keep up this frantic pace!
I made this card using the Indigoblu Large Snowflake stamp. I obviously have something about snowflakes as they tend to figure largely in my cards this year. The other main item on this card was a metal snowflake stencil, which I acquired recently via a friend. I think we tend to forget about metal stencils in these days of the more modern versions, but they can still have their place. I also used a couple of stamps from a set which I got with a magazine before last Christmas, they are called Enchanted Christmas by Hot Off The Press, and I have found them very useful.
On my white square base card I stamped two of the Hot off the Press freebie stamps using Versamark Ink and WOW Silver EP. I then took a piece of white card, and using the metal stencil and Distress Inks in Peacock Feather and Tumbled Glass, and Nautical Blue Memento Dye Ink, and a small piece of blending foam, I made a random pattern with the stencil, and then used the inks to colour the remaining areas of white card. I mounted this onto dark blue card. Onto white card I stamped with Versamark Ink, heat embossed using WOW Sparkling Snow EP, and then cut round the snowflake shape. I inked with a slightly watered down Peacock Feather DI to keep the colour a bit paler, and highlighted the edges with the Nautical Blue Memento. Using a Versamark Pen I made a round shape in the centre and heat embossed with WOW Silver EP.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and for all the lovely comments I have received. Your continuing interest is much appreciated. Hope you all have a good weekend.
I am entering the challenge over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop which requires us to use snippets/scraps of card or paper, and I used some small snippets of dark blue and white card for the background and the snowflake. There is a special challenge running at the moment as well as the usual weekly one, and this is my 3rd and final card.
I am also entering this card over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge which asks you to make your own background.
Vintage Stamping Challenges, sponsored by Flonzcraft, has a challenge running this month to use Cold and Frosty Colours, and as it doesn't have to be a vintage design I am entering this.
