season's greetings .....

Hello. Back again with a card I made using Visible Image stamps. I got inspiration from a gift card that I saw that used blue and silver.

I inked a piece of white card with distress inks using a number of blues and a bit of black soot. I dried it slightly and then using the snowflakes i stamped with water and dried with kitchen roll fter a few seconds. This gave a bleached stamped effect. 

I also flicked some water at the background and then dried it off with paper and heat tool. I then overstamped with same snowflakes and the darker distress inks all over background.

Next I stamped the largest Christmas tree in versamark and embossed in platinum tinsel. I used the stars from the Jake set to stamp the stars. I actually separated the stars out for this as the stamp comes in a small cluster of 3. Treated same way as tree.

The greeting is from the Gaudete set. I didn't have a star for the tree so i drew it freehand with versamark pen and embossed it. 
I bleached off a bit more colour around stars using a damp brush .
Matted on pearlescent dark blue and white base card and finished off with some gems.

As usual I do hope you like my make, Theresa xx
