The challenge at Caardvarks is to create a new stamped card that is decorated inside and out. Here is the front of my card:
Three elements from a Penny Black clear set called Robin's Kingdom were stamped on white cardstock, and colored with pencils and mineral spirits. Then I sponged on faded jeans distress ink for the sky and quickly stamped on a water-spritzed-only snowflake background stamp. Here is a detailed shot to show the water-stamping of the snowflakes, the glitter, and the star gem.
When everything was dry I added touches of glitter. And since I didn't feel there was a good place to put a sentiment on the outside, I chose what I consider to be the perfect sentiment (also a Penny Black stamp) for the inside, along with a repeat of the star.
Supplies: white, red and aqua cardstock, Penny Black stamps 30-056 Robin's Kingdom, 3227K Hope is born, Hero Arts CG100 Snowflake Circle, versafine onyx black ink, colored pencils and mineral spirits, faded jeans distress ink, glue pen and HA prisma glitter
