Cornish Temptress!

...I know, I know, I am really rubbish at thinking up original titles for my posts...but, this one actually makes sense (to me at least LOL)...bear with me....




The Gingersnap Creations are being sponsored this month by Paper Temptress...and it just so happens that I was sent some gorgeous cardstock to play with...I mean it folks, it is really lush thick and colourful...so I decided to make a card...and I used last month's "stamp of the month" by Cornish Heritage Farms ...so here is my...Cornish Temptress....now you can see what I was meaning with the title LOL




I used some of the fab cardstock to make the mats for The Pine's stamp, which was stamped with Pine Needles Distress Ink....and then I blended more DI's over the background and splatted it with water to make a blotchy snowy effect.




The little sentiment is also a CHF stamp and I added a couple of Prima poinsettia's before smothering a lot of Picket Fence Distress Stickles all over the place to get a snowy and frosty look.

Thanks for looking..have a great day!

Really beautiful! I am hooked on Stickles at the moment so it's always fun to see what others are doing with them.
