I've finally got around to playing with my 'Noel' and Christmas Minature stamps from Claritystamp which I bought at the NEC recently.......I was watching the fab Barbara Gray yesterday and thought I'd better get my stamps out, I wimped out of using the brayer but think I've managed to get a vaguely similar effect using my usual cut n dry foam!! So here it is.........
I've used Spellbinders labels 17 largest die to cut the silver mount and the next size down to cut the white linen card. I've stamped 'Noel' onto the white die cut using Versamark and detail silver embossing powder and heat embossed. Next I've made a mask for this and cut out the inside of the 'O'. I've added a small circle mask which will become the moon and then through the mask I've smudged denim Adirondack ink across the top half of the 'O'. I've then stamped the fir tree from the minatures into the 'O' using first and second generation stamping to build up a forest and add some depth. Next I removed all the masks and stamped the Reindeer and Santa sleigh minature in black Archival ink. The edges of the white die cut were smudged very lightly with the denim Adirondack and then mounted onto the silver panel. A simple background of white linen embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and silver ribbon and charm completes the simple look.
Thanks for stopping by.......x
