Stamping Overload!

I am still trying to keep to my challenge of stamping more often.

And I can’t believe I have actually used two stamps to mix and match….. with quite pleasing results!

I found the snowman stamp at a car boot sale amongst a box of odds and ends.  It’s by Imaginations (no. 1826)

It took me six attempts to get it printed right, which is why I won’t print directly onto a card.

All I have done is colour it in with Whispers pens and then gone over the various parts with a water filled brush, a tip picked up from Dawn Biddy! I have embellished with Hero Arts Hologram micro glitter and a few flat  gems and tiny stars, which are actually nail/manicure embellishments from Poundland.

The background is from DoCrafts, stamped six times, very closely together and then trimmed to size and matted on silver card.
This is “well adventurous” for me, right out of my comfort zone!
