I have one more card to share with you that I created for a December VSN challenge. We were to use a Frosted Image Technique. You stamp an image in a colored in, then stamp over it in white ink and rub to get a frosted look. Well…that didn’t work with Distress ink and Adirondack Snow Cap ink.

I started by stamping images from an old PTI set that I had for a while  (called Life) in Spruced Ice and Scattered Straw Distress Ink. Next I pressed those ink pads in my craft mat and did the same with my Snow cap ink. I rubbed white ink over the colored inks and then smudged that mix over the images.

A sentiment from that set was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink and topped with one tiny Baby Bling Rhinestone. To finish the card off I added a double scored border around the edges with my Scor-Pal.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy, Healthy and Successful 2012.
Hugs and smiles
