Hello friends :-) I hope you're having a good weekend. I'm sharing another Christmas card, this time my DT project for Fashionable Stamping Challenges where our theme of 'Home Sweet Home' has been chosen by the lovely Yvonne. As always our generous sponsor Marina from Cottage Crafts has a voucher up for grabs for our lucky winner so you won't want to miss out. Don't forget though, we're a rubber stamping challenge so no digi stamps allowed. Do pop over and have a look at the gorgeous artwork my DT sisters have created to inspire you this time, as always they are a-ma-zing!!
This challenge was the perfect excuse to get out one of my all time favourite stamp sets, New England Winter from Chocolate Baroque. I stamped the image and masked it so that i could create the background using black PanPastel which I fixed with a blast of cheapie hairspray. I added the 'snow' with a white gel pen and die cut the image nesties
The image is coloured with promarkers and has lots of glamour dust for snow and glossy accents to give the tree lights some definition. You can see the focal image a bit better here
The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and the background is made using Chocolate Baroque snowflake stamps. To finish off i've added some lace, red organza ribbon, black velvet ribbon and a little silver Christmas tree charm
