At the Caardvark's blog, the challenge is to make a clean and simple card, and the sponsor this time is Hero Arts. I decided to use last year's Winter Tree to simulate this year's new cling stamp called Starry Night.
I started by stamping my tree on glossy white cardstock and embossing it in white. Then I sponged faded jeans distress ink all over the card. This was then overstamped with a beautiful Memory Box stamp called Peace Collage in the same faded jeans ink. The "peace" didn't show up enough for me, so I restamped the bottom part of the collage stamp on white cardstock in faded jeans, tore along the top, and then trimmed the rest to fit over the main image, distressing all along the edges. Then I used 2 little snowflake stamps to add some more snowflakes, heat embossing some of them in white and stamping others in faded jeans. The whole panel was then adhered to a white cardstock base and I finished by adding a punched blue snowflake.
Supplies: glossy and matte white cardstocks, versamark and faded jeans distress inks, Memory Box G1411 Peace Collage, Hero Arts H5244 Winter Tree, snowflakes from CL343 Holiday Sayings and A4871 Design Snowflake
