Visible Image Stamps, Distress inks, Stickles, Black Stazon ink & Promarkers

Hello again,

I've another creation to share with you, made using some fantastic

The stamps used on this 8" x 8" card are......

I wanted to make a Christmas card, without using any Christmas stamps, so I stamped the Castle using Distress ink, and shading it with  Promarkers, I made a mask to cover the Castle out of a post it note, then added a moon mask over the top, before blending the background using Distress inks. After removing both masks. I ripped a piece of copy paper, and used this to make the blue snow ripples again with Distress ink.

I stamped the Winter tree in brown Distress ink, and the Tall Grass in blue. I used bleach on the Speckled Background stamp, and stamped randomly over the coloured part of the background, then stamped it using blue Distress ink on all the white parts, this is my snow storm, lol !!!! I used Cosmic Shimmer dries white glue, for my snow, and whilst still wet sprinkled glitter over it.

 I stamped Fae onto a separate piece of card, and coloured her with Promarkers, then fussy cut. Her wings were stamped with Black Stazon onto Acetate, and coloured on the reverse side with Promarkers, and when dry I added some white Acrylic paint over the Promarkers, and fussy cut the wings. Her wand is a pin with a red star shaped end, which I covered in Versamark, then dipped into a pale blue powder, and heated embossed.
  My finishing touch of course, is stickles, pink and blue on the Fairy and the grass, red for the baubles and dots of Frosted lace Stickles for the snow storm.
