Snowflakes make a Festive Flurry

The next Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is a sketch challenge.  I loved how this sketch challenged me think outside my comfort zone.  I used the Festive Flurry Bundle and the Northern Flurry Textured Embossing folder to create the card below.  I stamped the snowflake with Versamark and Indigo Blue on Vellum card stock then heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder for shimmer and die cut it.  The snowflake is adhered to another layer of Vellum I embossed with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

To add extra sparkle to the background I used Silver Dazzling Details on the embossed snowflakes.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Watercolor Technique Challenge #26

Another fun challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments – watercoloring technique.  I really like the hydrangea in the Because I care stamp set so I used the image in my project.  I also used the Newsprint DSP and Vellum.  I love the Newsprint DSP.  All the patterns are so interesting and they’re perfect for so many projects.  I stamped the hydrangea image with Classic Black ink  on Vellum paper.  The Classic Black ink is a good choice to stamp an image you’re going to watercolor because the ink is waterproof.  I then watercolored the hydrangea in Cherry Cobbler and the leaves in Old Olive.  The Crumb Cake layer and oval are sponged in Crumb Cake to give more of a vintage look.  I added a border punched with the Scallop Trim punch and Black Satin ribbon at the bottom of the card.  I hope you’re inspired to try this technique.  I can’t wait for you to take the challenge and post your creation.
