Here is something Very different for me in several ways. For one thing it is my first attempt at monochrome but it is also my first try at those fancy cards with all of the gorgeous embellishments. I think I probably took it a bit overboard but I'm learning. The theme on the Graph'it Colouring Crazy Challenge blog that started last week is monochrome and I thought this was going to be very difficult for me. I actually really enjoyed it and will definitely work with it again.
I used one of the new stamps from Whimsy Stamps called Sarah by Sylvia Zet. This stamp was a new release for November and you can find it HERE.
The large snowflake and large flowers are die cuts from Sizzix. I cut them out of chipboard and then painted them with TH crackle paint in Picket Fence. I then painted over the snowflake again with Tattered Angels glitter paints but its not showing well in the photos. The edges are inked in Walnut Stain distress ink. The photos really don't do this card justice, it looks washed out. I don't know why I couldn't get the lighting to work out.
All of the other elements are die cuts from Sizzix as well- the present is a Cuddlebug die. The rolled flowers are cut out of corrugated card stock to give them more dimension. The snowman is a Sizzix die but it is a Basic Grey die. The flat back pearls, ribbon, and tree are from my stash. I finally got my hands on some frantage! woohoo! I am in love!
My dp are an old collection from MME. The sentiment and present are Heidi Swapp clear stamps. Here is a closer look at the stamp, Sarah, before I added all the goodies.
