Not long until Christmas!  'tee-hee-hee'

My cards today show you the lovely new Christmas stamps from Visible Image.

I deliberately went colour crazy with these!

I just love the hot red which contrasts with the icy cold sentiment and the white embossing powder I used.

I started as I nearly always do by colouring some card with Brusho paint powders made into a liquid paint. A little pinch of powder in a spot of water goes a long way! I painted red, orange and yellow using a broad flat brush.

When this was dry I used the snowflake stamp with a dilute bleach solution first. Once dry I over stamped with a hot pink ink just off centre to make the image look 3D.

I then added more snowflakes in red all over the card.

I stamped the sentiment onto a dark red piece of the painted card with white embossing powder before matting and layering with white card.

The turquoise and purple card uses white embossing powder instead of bleach.  I then used 2 shades of turquoise for the other snowflakes.  I distressed the edges of the pieces of card by running my scissors down them and used a pin-wheel to give a faux stitched effect. I also used 2 sizes of white brads in the corners.

If you visit me here often you will know that I am a frequent user of string! I love adding little knots to break up the long lines of string.
