Novembers challenge over on Lavinia Stamps is Let It Snow. Well usually that wouldn't be hard to do would it, but I don't have many of Lavinia's Christmas stamps, and the ones I do have don't include snow..... Anyway, as any crafter will do, I improvised with white embossing powder.
I started by making the hills with a torn strip of paper as a mask and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and blended it with a shaving brush, I wanted the hills to be very subtle. Then I added the same colour to the sky, I then used Dusty Concord DI to add the purple, taking it into the blue of the sky a little too. All the black stamping was done with Versafine. Then I stamped with Versamark and white embossing glitter by WOW and gave it a blast with the heat gun. I used a Versamark pen to add the snow to the castle, tree and holly leaves and heat embossed with the same white embossing glitter. I used Glamour dust for the fairy's wings, though it's not showing up on the picture. Lastly I sponged the Distressed Condord DI around the edges to frame it all.
Thanks for looking xx
