We wish you a merry Christmas

Today's Sunday's with Santa facebook challenge is 'never seen ink' - to use a stamp that hasn't been used before. I randomly stamped the background of the navy blue card blank with an inkadinkado snowflake stamp using versamark and heat embossing with white detail powder. I then stamped the white panel with Inca Merry Christmas background stamp using stazon ultramarine and heat embossing with detail clear. The pyramage topper is one that I've had for a long time, originally part of a kit. I added a couple of peel off snowflakes.

This is also for:

  14. This is lovely. The heat embossing on the navy blue paper and the centered sentiment behind the image makes it gorgeous. I particularly like how you've used slightly smaller pieces on top of each other on to that image. Thanks for playing at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and good luck. Hope to see you back sunday for a new challenge. Bettina xx
