Ready Steady Stamp!

...I have finally gotten around to joining in with the fab Ready Steady Stamp challenge which this time is:


I used Alcohol Inks in Cool Peri and Purple Twilight to make a background and then used Tim Holtz Christmas stamps for the stamping.




The snowman and the deer are both painted with Rock Candy Cracklepaint but it isn't showing up on my rubbish photo's LOL I used Rock Candy Distress Stickles on top of the crackles to emphasise them but that doesn't show either .. I really do need to be taught how to take a photo!!




The snowflakes are Maya Road Chipboard which was Gesso'd and then painted with Antique Pewter Cracklepaint and I added gems to the middles to finish them off.




The skinny is something I have never made before and really enjoyed working with this size...I cut some mountboard to stick the glossy card onto which gave it a bit more stability and then mounted this onto some more background glossy card which was layered with black and silver cardstock.




I hope the cards/skinny's are ok for the challenge! Thanks for looking and have a great day!
