This card uses a lovely Claritystamp set called Winter Wonderland. These stamps by Barbara Gray are some of the best made and designed stamps I have ever seen. For those of you who do not know anything about Clarity, these stamps have Barbara's patented handle and are clear photopolymer, hence the name.
I used Black Archival ink and white stamping card, and for the shadows Memento
London Fog which seemed a little pale so I then added a bit of Memento
Tuxedo Black which I also used over the foliage around the top and
sides, applied with blending foam. The foliage is actually the branches of the tree stamp.
To finish I mounted on black card and the on to an approximately 6 inch square card. I decided to leave the sentiment off the card as I thought it was probably better to put a sentiment on just the inside.
I am entering the following challenges:
Claritystamp where the challenge is Monochromatic.
Pixie's Crafty Workshop where the challenge is to use snippets/scraps of paper and card, and I have used snippets of white and black card.
Thanking you for looking at my blog today.
