RSS Challenge



This is my entry for the Ready Steady Stamp Challenge No.8. The 'ingredients' this time were:-
1. Lilac, Black and Silver
2. Snowflakes
3. Crackle
4. A skinny (2" x 4")
5. The letter C
Not sure I made the correct use of the skinny as I hadn't heard of this before but hey-ho. All cardstock was from my stash and the letter C was cut out using my Eazi template and stamped with an ancient PSX stamp. After this I covered it with Versamark and clear E.P. and embossed the entire letter. I repeated this process about 8 times as I don't have UTEE. It then went in the freezer for a while, once removed I cracked the embossing in several places. I first saw this technique in a magazine, but have never tried it until now.
The beautiful lady is an image from a Debbi Moore cd rom and the skinny was stamped with a Penny Black Music Pattern image and then embossed with silver E.P. and distressed. A few more snowflakes were stamped around the edges of the card and I added a few peel-offs. The finishing touch was a black ribbon. Hope you like it.
