12 Days of Christmas - Day 9

Here's Tag 9:

The technique Tim was demonstrating here was that one can stamp in one colour, clear emboss it, and then colour overtop and the embossed area would resist. I don't have any cool, bold background stamps, so went for something a bit more serene.

I stamped the trees and snow first (snow was just a speckled stamp, stamped with versamark ink), then clear embossed it.  Then I picked 4 bluish distress inks and stamped in layers.  I think I would have liked it a bit better if the trees popped a bit more, but it's alright.  It does make me long for a white Christmas, but we're not expecting that this year.

  1. Oh I love the look of this card!! It is so pretty and serene, as you say. I love the simplicity in design and the complexity in technique. A great piece of stamping.
