Walking in the snow





Hi crafter's

This card is going to be entered in to the Crafty Individuals challenge it can be a Halloween or Christmas project. I have chosen Christmas simply because I love this stamp and find any reason to use it. The backgound was created with the Gelli plate. Mask the centre of the Gelli plate with a piece of paper the same size as the stamp. Brayer the colours on to the plate, I used purple, white and pale blue. Blot the paint with some scrunched up paper to add texture. Remove the mask and take a print. Stamp the image in to the masked off space. Colour in with pencils then go over with some clear Sakura Gelly pen, spread over with water. This is a quick easy way to make it sparkle. Mask the centre again with a clean mask. Ink up the new snowflakes stamp from Indigoblu with Versamark and emboss with white powder. Draw a wiggly line around the main image with a black fine liner pen. Run a black Promarker around the outside edge and mount on to a white base card. Really pleased how this turned out, hope you like it too.

That's it for now, thanks for looking

Sally
