I was asked recently what my favourite crafting product was and I answered that is had to be my inks. Ever since then I have barely used ink (typical, eh?) except to maybe blend a couple of edges. However, starting with yesterday's card, I picked up the distress inks again and started colouring my images with them. I've coloured today's image with them too.
I'm entering today's card into the following challenges:
Truly Scrumptious - The layout with the optional extra of stitching.
ABC Christmas - C is for Candy (Candy canes have been used)
Susie and Vikki's Christmas Club - Non-traditional (now when do I ever use traditional colours - I love a splash of pink at Christmas) :)
UPDATE - It has also been made as a DT example for the Whimsy challenge at SNR - WSC04 Lots of Frills
I hope by the time Christmas comes most of my friends will know how to set up these easel cards; I'm sure they must be foxing one or two people.
I decided to try stamping and glittering on acetate for this card and here are the snowflakes I made using this method. I love them! They are such a delicate embellishment no matter what size you use. The stamps were inked up with white stayzon and glittered with glamour dust.Items used:
