Second card tonight...

Hi - I'm here again...

This card was prompted by Christine over at Nanaseaside - whose lovely card reminded me that I needed to use this stamp that I bought when I was with her at the Harrogate show in September! Ah well.... ty Christine!

It's from Clarity Stamps - sorry I don't have the link - but as Christine said, Barbara Grey when she demonstrates it makes it look so much easier than it actually is!! And believe it or not, I've used silver embossing powder which looks gold (!) because I didn't take the photo in daylight..

Sooo, the image was stamped with versamark - then embossed with silver. I then stamped the image onto a sheet of copier paper, cut out the O and used the rest as a mask. I placed the mask over the silver image, then used a brayer to create the colour in the sky. With me so far? Barbara explained it so much better! The tree and star stamps were also from a little set by Clarity. When all that was done, I mounted it onto silver mirri card, then used a piece of card that I'd embossed with the swiss dots which was ALSO mounted onto mirri card - and put both onto my ACTUAL card..... (still with me? hehe), then used my MS punch for snowflakes that I (of course) glittered!! Errrr I think that was all!

Anyway - hope you like! I have another card, which I'll wait until the morning to post as I'm off to bed now....

Hugs
