Blue and white


Hi everyone, one of my favourite techniques at the moment is to stamp and heat embossing with embossing powder and then sponge ink over the top of the image.

To make this card, I first made the snowflake background by stamping a snowflake (Penny Black) several times and heat embossing with white embossing powder and using a Ranger distress tool to ink over the top with Ranger Faded Jeans ink.  I did the same with the Christmas tree stamp (IndigoBlu) and the word "Christmas" (Penny Black).  The word "happy" was made with little punched circles and an alphabet stamp set.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Speedy Fox and Friends challenge 125 to make a card using a favourite technique

Creative Card Crew challenge 19 to make a card with a TREE

Artful Times challenge 13 to make something featuring a TREE as the main focus

Thank you so much for looking!
