Time Out Challenge #19 Reminder


We are already a week in to the current challenge at Time Out which is:

Embossing with an optional twist of sparkle

It is great to see all of the sparkly creations already in the gallery and you still have a week to play along.  Remember that you are in with a chance of winning a stamp set from our fab sponsors, Avocado Arts if you use the twist :)

I went all out on sparkle with this Christmas card:

I coloured some card with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and clear embossed snowflakes in the background before spraying with some Heidi Swapp clear shine spray.  I also brushed some Perfect Pearls around the edge.  I die cut a delicate snowflake wreath from Memory Box in silver glitter card and in vellum and scattered some sequins.  The sentiment, from PTI, is white embossed in the centre. 

It was quite difficult to capture the shine so apologies for the glare on the photo!

Do head over to Time Out where the rest of the DT have more great inspiration to get you in the mood for embossing :)  I look forward to seeing what you create....

I will also link this card up at Addicted to Stamps current Holiday challenge and at the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge.

Thanks, as always for stopping by.  I hope to see you again soon,
