Good morning folks, we've got a new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time around out theme is 'Make your own Background'. As usual we're sponsored by Flonzcraft and our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend! Don't forget though we are a stamping challenge so no digi stamps are allowed.
For my card I've used some new stamps and embossing powders from Chloe's collection, I love these EPs as they are soooooooo sparkly!
I began with a gelli plate background, I love using dye inks on my gelli plate, they give a really different effect as the ink goes into teeny tiny beads. Once I'd inked the gelli plate us with assorted shades of green distress ink I stamped with a pine bough stamp to remove some of the ink before I took a print on white card. Next I used the same stamp and Pine Needles distress ink to to add some more foliage to the background. Then I repeated this but using versamark and WOW Icicle EP for some frosty sparkle.
I stamped the images (large and small snow flower) on white pearl card and embossed with Icicle EP and layered them over the snowflakes from the same set that I stamped on acetate and embossed with a Green Embossing tinsel from my stash. I added some of Chloe's bling stones to the centre of the flowers. The sentiment in the centre was embossed with Mercury Glass EP and I added some Pine Needles DI to the large 'Believe'.
To finish off I've added lace, sparkly white ribbon and some faux pearls.
