Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! I'm back on the blog today to share the card I made for the October challenge at CCAYR, but first I want to point out a change that Deanne has made to the challenge. From here on out, there will only be one posting, at the beginning of the month. All DT members will create for that post, and there will be no more reminder post.
So now that the business part is out of the way, here is my card:
This image is so sweet, and it is Peace Love Joy Angel from Bugaboo. I had made this ink blended background a week or so ago, with thoughts of using it for another type of card, but the more I looked at it, it just spoke "Winter" to me! So with that in mind I pulled out the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes background stamp (for the 1st time since buying it!), stamped it in Versamark ink, and heat embossed with Recollections Snow detail embossing powder. I LOVE HOW IT TURNED OUT!!! I colored the image to match the panel, cut it out using a Spellbinders oval die, cut the inked panel down using Spellbinders Card Creator A (largest die), and added small bits of shimmer using a silver Gelly Roll pen and Wink of Stella.
