Snow Dust

This is a CASE of a card I saw on the PB blog . I used Distress Inks instead of tattered angels mist to do my background, I'm happy with how it turned out. The image was stamped in black archival ink and embossed with burgundy EP what a neat tech. it turns the tree brown. Burgundy,cinnamon,and copper stickles were added for sparkle. Used curved rectangles to cut out the image and layered on burgundy C/S which was stamped embossed with Egyptian gold EP.

All supplies used can be found at Fargo Cat Shop

TSC1 All dressed up

Well after numerous tries I finally finished my card for the new and 1st. challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge Blog. For some reason I was having difficulty with my glossy c/s and couldn't get a nice sharp image . This one still isn't the best but I so wanted to participate in the first challenge.
Image is Marilyn Monroe from Stampsmith and was stamped with archival ink on glossy C/S . DP from BG Euphoria collection. I added tulle ribbon to match her dress and attached a ribbon flower that I received in a blog winning from Barbara Schram . Marilyn Monroe was such a glamorous lady and no matter what she wore she always looked DRESSED UP .
