Some more Snowy Postcards

Snowy Postcard dynamic duos and deconstructed sketch challenge

supplies: white cardstock, Echo Park This & That Christmas, Authentique Festive Collection paper pads, American Crafts Rouge glitter cardstock, Stamendous Snowy Postcard, VersaFine onyx black ink, red and green markers, Memory Box Perched Reed Bird, Twinklets Diamond Dust, Christmas Red Stickles

Still playing with this beautiful Snowy Postcard stamp by Stampendous.  I found 2 new challenges today, and am entering this first card into both of them.  The first is Dynamic Duos, to use light green and red.


And the 2nd is a sketch challenge, which enabled me to bring some of these beautiful design papers into play, for the Deconstructed Sketch challenge:

Deconstructed Sketch No. 79

And I kept on playing and have 2 other cards using this stamp.  The first uses the same central panel colored exactly the same as above, but just added to a plain white card base embossed with snowflakes.

And for the next one I tried stamping it in broken china distress ink and placing it against an aqua glitter cardstock.  I added a sentiment stamped in red on this one, too, from Mark's Finest Papers All is Calm set. I've run out of small red gems and pearls, so I'm using Christmas Red Stickles for all of the berries today.  I also used Twinklets Diamond Dust on all the snowy parts of the stamp - love how it gives an almost furry appearance when tilted a certain way!
