So where did October go ? I can't believe we're into November already, which also means it's the next challenge over at The Stamp Man. For the next month we want to see embossing, this could be dry embossing or heat embossing, or both !
I received the December edition of the Craft Stamper magazine earlier this week and fell in love with the free stamp. I stamped the background using this stamp and Archival Vermillion and Olive inks. I've used a Sizzix snowflake EF and blended Festive Berries, Evergreen Bough and a little Gathered Twigs DI over it. I've then sprinkled a little gold EP around the edge to add a little shine. I used an embossing diffuser for the main panel and stamped santa in the centre.
The holly leaves have been cut using the Tim Holtz Holly Branch die. I stuck Claudine Helmuth's sticky back canvas onto some Grunge Paper, cut the leaves out and then embossed them with the snowflake EF. I've then rubbed Evergreen Bough DI over them and also sprinkled a little gold EP around the edges of the leaves.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
