Sharing cards made for The Stampers’ Sampler Holiday Happenings Challenge Call.
The stamps are PaperArtsy ESN, designed by Sara Naumann. They are such well thought out stamp sets, with focal images, text/script and smaller elements. I stamped up sets ESN17 and 18. Although they appear in the Holiday Happenings challenge results, they are not necessarily for Christmas, the cards could be for winter birthdays, simply ink up different sentiments.
The colours were difficult to photograph, you cannot see the metallic paint which was blended onto the backgrounds. It is all very subtle, I wanted an almost watercolour effect, aiming for a frosty, wintry appearance with a hint of the delicate.A That’s Crafty greyboard snowflake is layered with a paperflower painted to co-ordinate with a rhinestone adding a hint of sparkle and just a wee dash of glamour!
You probably know by now that I love to add scraps! This little piece was literally a scrap piece lying around.
The second cardThat piece of gold paper was under paper
as was this piece, torn from, if I remember, a piece of deli paper which was used as underpaper.
The final card features the same stamp as the first card, this time stamping the little snowflakes/flowers adding tiny pearl stickers to their centres.The sentiment layered with another fragment of under paperwith another piece popping up here. I particularly like the shimmer on this sliver … I am easily pleased!Thank you for your visit. Even during absences from on-line activities, I always make sure I catch-up with comments you kindly leave for me, so thank you!
