Snow Much Fun

Today I am showcasing the SKATING EMPORIUM stamp set from Artistic Outpost.
The background has been coloured with Distress Inks and I have added embossing paste through a stars layering stencil to add texture and dimension to my design. Once I applied the embossing paste I then added clear embossing powder and allowed to dry, once dry I then melted the powder, lovely technique from Pamellia.
I die cut two baubles from white card and then added stamping to each bauble along with shading using Broken China Distress Ink and then flicking the background with water to add blotches. I also added die cut WINTER to the top and bottom of my design.
This close up picture highlights the wonderful texture from the embossing.
I added two banners behind the focal image and once again added stencilled stars along with the sentiment "Snow much Fun!".

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Gorgeous, Tracy - the ice-skating images work so well in the baubles, and those glossy stars provide a fabulously frosty touch.
