Welcome to the January Challenge for Serendipity Stamps! This month the challenge is Hidden Gems! You can get all the details over on the Serendipity Challenge Blog. The sale this week is Buy 3 Get 1 Free. Good through January 14 and as always, we have a have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player.
For my hidden gem, I used the wonderful Winter Town and a sort of spotlight technique. I also did something I rarely do…I didn’t color a single thing. At first I wanted to white emboss it on navy card stock, but the image is so detailed, it just couldn’t be done. So I went in the reverse direction and stamped it with navy ink onto white card stock. Just the spotlight area was stamped again on a smaller, taller piece and I added some “snow” with the Ink Spots image and few snowflakes cut from the Snow die.
I used the Marble Feathers background on the navy card stock layers. You can see it a bit more on the card inside along with some trimmed off navy strips and some stamped snowflakes & one fussy cut snowflake.
