Walking In A Winter Wonderland

...Over on the Gingersnap Creations blog there is a brand new sponsor for December...a great stamp company called Hearts In Touch...and also today marks a brand new theme for a challenge...Winter Wonderland.




I was very lucky to be sent a gorgeous sheet of stamps from Hearts In Touch ... #134...and here is a card I made using one of the images...which also combines the new challenge theme. As usual, my photography leaves a lot to be desired...it doesn't pick up the subtlety of the image...but take my word for it...it is very pretty :O))




I stamped the image using Faded Jeans Distress Ink and spritzed with water to soften the edges...using a heat gun to dry off the image stopped it smudging too much. I added some Icicle Stickles to make it look snowy and then used some Bazzill to make a background...and...after a good old rummage in my card stash I found a fab sheet of snowflake acetate...goodness knows where it came from but it worked a treat with the whole card. The sentiment is also from the Hearts In Touch sheet...and yes, I do believe :O))

Thanks for looking..have a great day!
