Christmas Kickstart Challenge #2 - Bundle Up!

Michele (I Card Everyone) turned me onto this new Christmas challenge.  You can never have too many Christmas cards on hand!  I am coming in on challenge #2 at Christmas Kickstart.  The theme is BUNDLE UP.  I immediately thought of the MFT scarf, hat and mittens set. I decided to create a colorful background on Kraft by layering inks. 

I stamped my whole design in white pigment ink on an A2 Kraft panel. I then went over the design in a blue dye ink, slightly skewing from the original white stamping.  I went over the design a third time stamping each image’s fine detail in Versamark and embossing in silver.  I love the effect!

I mounted the kraft panel to an A2 card base.  I die cut a couple of snowflakes, adhered and added a gemstone as a final touch. I stamped and white embossed a sentiment on a talk bubble, and finished. 

Supplies: My Favorite Things Winter Warmth, Impress Stamps sentiment, Simon Says Stamp Alexis Snowflake, Memory Box Giovanna Snowflake, My Favorite Things Say What Bubbles, Versamark, Hero Arts embossing powder, Hero Arts dye ink, Simon Says Stamp white pigment ink, Stardream, rhinestones (stash)
