Silver snowflakes

It was time to make my inchies for the monthly swap on the Bubbly Funk forum, this time with the theme of 'winter'. The background is Curious Metallics silver, on to which I stamped with four lovely little snowflake stamps from a set by Wild Rose Studio (these were in my prize parcel that I received the other day from Hando Hippo - you can read about it here). I inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver. I added a few Kanban bling gems (these were also in the parcel from Handy Hippo) and then dipped the edges of the inchies into glue and then into Art Institute glitter.

I'm linking for the following challenges:

Golden angels

At last I back to doing some crafting after what seems ages (apart from making my card for my CHNC challenge 47). I'm still in the process of getting stuff back into right places (or new places for some of it - taking the opportunity for a bit of re-vamp of my craft storage). Anyway, back to the point of this post - I needed to get my ATCs done for the monthly swap on the Bubbly Funk forum. This month the theme is 'gold', so I decided to use one of my favourite Christmas stamps 'Angel collage' by Rubber Stampede, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail gold. I then added gold stickles to the halos. These were than matted on to some textured gold foiled card.

As always with glittery, foiled things, it was difficult to get photos, particularly as the light isn't good today, but you can get the general idea, although they do actually look better irl:
