PPA 276


This was a nice and easy sketch for the Pals Paper Arts challenge!  I need to get moving on Christmas cards so I made several variations of this today.  I still have a long way to go!

I started out stamping the snowflakes with Versamark and Pool Party embossing powder.  Then I did the sentiment in Versamark with white embossing powder.  I sponged Pool Party around the sentiment and a few other areas.  I then sponged with Island Indigo.  That wasn't quite dark enough to make the snowflakes pop so I grabbed what I thought was Night of Navy.  Well, I was putting it away and noticed it was a retired ink, Blue Bayou.  Oooops!  My fingers are very blue.  I finished off with the Iced Rhinestone embellishments and a basic jewel.  Please let me know what you think.

Wow! This is beautiful. I may try your sponging technique. I have Pool Party embossing party too! Perfect use of those iced rhinestones. (I hoard those).

The emboss resist is beautiful. I don't use this technique very often and yet I love the results.
