Retro Rubber Challenge #54...Let it Snow..
Time for another awesome Retro Rubber challenge.
This time we want you to use snow on your card -
I am not a big fan of snow, living in NYC it can be a bit much for this Londoner... But I do like making pretty snow based cards :)
I learnt this awesome technique in Cheiron's holiday class last year.
Basically you blend together your inks, starting with the light one and work up to a darker colour. Then flick your blended paper with water and lay a paper towel over it - voila! Instant snow effect - ah.mazing!!
I love it and have totally been over using this lately..
Once I had my background I dug out two stamp sets by Simon Says Stamp (Hand Lettered Wishes from 2015 and Cute Snowflakes from Jan 2016 - both from SSS cardkits ).
I stamped the sentiment in Navy Blue and the snowflakes and flourishes in Grey. I wish I had considered stamping snowflakes in Grey before!! They look so much better.
I added a couple of teeny bits of bling to finish it all off.
I love the Wintry feel of my card.
Your turn to get your snow on, but first go over to Retro Rubber and see what my awesome teammates have been making.
Challenge ends on January 27th don't forget to tell us how old your stamp is, that is half the fun :) And please limit your challenge entries to 10 including ours.
