First of all apologies for the poor quality photograph, I'm back to photographing by artificial and that is never good ! So, we've arrived at the next Stamp Man challenge and this time the challenge is a Collage or a Collage background. This one caused me to scratch my head, I can tell you. I'm not sure now if I like what I've done, but you have to just call it a day sometimes ! Please make sure you check out the other DT members creations, they are fabulous !
I started by covering some white card with Old Paper Distress Stains and then using the snowflake stamp from the Tim Holtz Mini Holidays set and I stamped them in Archival Coffee and Sepia. I stamped the text from French Marketplace and the Postcard stamp with black Archival ink. I then pulled out some Mulberry paper that I had lurking at the back of my shelves and used Walnut Stain Distress Stains on it. I stamped the word Believe using a white dabber. I also stamped some more snowflakes using the white dabber to mount the main image on.
The swirl is cut using the Elegant Flourishes die and the buttons are from my stash. To give it a little sparkle to finish I sprayed it with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls spray.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
