Time Out Challenge #19


I'm back with the start of our next Time Out Challenge - embossing with an optional twist of sparkle!  Just perfect for all of those festive cards that are popping up all over blogland :)

Here is my card:

I embossed a Penny Black snowflake stencil with embossing paste and sprinkled with glitter while it was still wet and used my new stamps from Stamplorations which are just fantastic!  I wilver embossed the sleigh, cute it out and watercoloured with inktense pencils.  A bit of wink of stella added some extra shimmer.  I also silver embossed the sentiment and cut out the words.

Lots of sparkle going on here!

I will also link up with Stamploration's November Challenge - Stamps and Layers. It is my first time playing along :)

Do head over to Time Out to see what fantastic inspiration the rest of the DT have for you.  We are really excited to have Lesley Croghan from Always Playing with Paper as our Guest Designer this time.  Lesley is an amazing card maker and will already be known to many of you so needs no introduction from me!

Did I mention that this challenge is sponsored by the fab Avocado Arts - what more incentive do you need to make your creations sparkly?!

I look forward to seeing you over at Time Out :)
