I spotted this image in a fellow Docrafter's gallery and that was it - i HAD to have it! I even ended up dreaming about it! This was my first card made after my back locked (see post below) and as I was just relaxing and messing around, I think the pressure must have been off as it came out better than I'd hoped - usually I think what I make isnt as nice as what was in my head so it was a pleasant surprise.
one who had used silver and gold embossing on their card and another on the Stampendous website who had used brown colouring to give the impression of age. I used both those techniques in the above and whilst my card is very different to the ones that inspired me, I enjoyed using two techniques to produce the card above.
Watercolour paper, kraft card.
Stampendous Snowy Postcard stamp,
Distress ink reinkers to colour.
LOTV Grunge Corners. & Chocolate Baroque (free with Craft Stamper) snowflake stamp.
