Something new

I bought a new Christmas stamp this week - and I've started experimenting with it too.  Here's the first card that I made with it:

What I did:  I stamped the image with Colorbox fluid chalks, heat embossed with Moonglow embossing powder, then painted with Twinkling H2O's over the top. I'm not 100% happy with the result, but for a first effort I don't think it's too bad.  The paint dried a different colour than I expected (and it's difficult to photograph the shimmer effect).

I used: Christmas Birds from Stamp-It Australia, Cuttlebug 'Holly Ribbons' EF, American Craft ribbon

  1. the Twinkling H20s take some getting used to, in my humble opinion, but girlie, they look GREAT painted over your image! i love how it still makes everything stand out and just adds that special je ne sais quoi... :)

    beautiful - and well done with the whole christmas card making thing. i have yet to start, but october holds lots of potential for me to get ahead!
