I think I might be beginning to get the hang of this blogging lark. Having started to look around a bit more, I realise how many fabulous blogs there are out there. I seem to have been drawn to a lot of the card making and paper crafting blogs such as the craft barn http://thecraftbarnblog.blogspot.co.uk and more recently discovered, Sir stamp a lots blog http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.co.uk. I also love having a mosy through all the things on http://mariannescraftroom.blogspot.co.uk. There are so many fun challenges out there to get your teeth in to- links to a couple more of my new favourites at the bottom of the page. I think what has got me most though is what a lovely community it is to be becoming a part of. People are so encouraging and friendly to one another- it really has been a blessing. Anyway, before I get too carried away in the sentiment of it all, here's a card I've put together this week. Hope you like it!
I die cut a couple of snow flakes and placed them strategically on the card whilst I inked the edges of them in versa colour Atlantic. Effectively this turned them in to a mask for the background. I pulled the ink out around them to create the stenciled effect.
Once done , I repositioned them on the card and stuck them down. I stamped on the Christmas sentiment from cardio in versa colour indigo.
Finally to add a bit of texture I raided my ribbon box and tied a couple of lengths of fluffy and sparkly ribbon down the side before dotting the snowflakes with frosted lace sickles glitter.
I'd like to enter this in to the following challenges; crafty ribbons, Christmas, no red and green
country view, add texture
