LET IT SNOW--NOT!
This Penny Black stamp set came the other day, and I finally got a chance to play with it. I first stamped the snowflakes in Versamark on white cs and clear embossed them. Then I sponged Broken China Distress ink over them. After cutting down the image, I mounted it on a darker blue cs, tied the silver cord around it and popped it up on a white card with dimensional tape.
The tag was stamped and hand cut to fit the lettering. I wanted one that was narrow so as not to cover too much of the design. I added pearls and gems for embellishment.
Someone in Florida may appreciate this as a Christmas card!
TIP: To adhere a panel that tends to curl after using a lot of inks or watercoloring, I use my Xyron machine to hold it down flat.
