'I is for Indigo & Ice'
She has a rather snazzy inspirational photo for you too:
We are sponsored for this challenge by Stamping with Brenda
Not only that, but Brenda is joining us at a guest designer for this challenge too!
Ok, so on to my card...Brenda sent us all a parcel of goodies to play with...and I used some of the card and silvery tinsel on my card. I decided to have another go at resist embossing (my first efforts will be uploaded tomorrow), and stamped this rather glorious tree ('Before the Snow' by Penny Black) in Versamark on white card, then heat embossed it in white. I then rubbed over the top with a couple of different colours of fluid chalk inks to create a dark night sky. To give the effect of snowfall, I spritzed the inks with water whilst still wet (I couldn't get a decent photo...they all looked washed out, but it does look like it's snowing in real life!). For the backing, I embossed a couple of different colours of Core'dinations card using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Ice Crystals' folders, then sanded the raised areas to reveal the coloured core. I used a Papermania snowflake border folder to emboss the silver card, and added some of the silvery tinsel from Brenda.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge...as always there are samples from my lovely DT buddies...as well as our sponsor and guest designer Brenda...and from our first ever 'Designer in the Spotlight', Shelley.
