White Stampin' for Craft Stamper

I'm honoured to be a Guest Designer at the Craft Stamper Challenge, they want to see some white stamping. 

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp: Bling it on and Kaiser craft
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge: Last minute Christmas
Fab'n' Funky: Christmas


Materials used:
I used a neglected Penny Black image, Berry Branch and my homed stamp-a-magic. I stamped the image first with white Color Box ink and the moved the stamp-a-magic just a few millimeters. I guess you could use a T shaped ruler if you have one and line up your stamp. The second imprint was made with black Archival ink. Then the image was heat embossed with extra fine clear powder.

The background was sponged with blue Distress ink hues, layer them up to create depth. The image was cut out with a Nestie label and the edges were coloured with a black Memento ink. I sponged the distress inks once again. The Penny Black clear stamp stars were stamped with white Color Box ink and some Stickles were added to get that frosty look. 

The gems are Kaiser Kraft. Some of the embossing powder went rouge, but it looks like snow adrift.


Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! I'll make some blog hopping tomorrow, this week has taken it's toll, one more week before I can put my feet up and munch some Christmas choccies.

Love and hugs
Maarit
