Can you tell how much I love this stamp set? This is my third post in a row using it. Definitely my current favorite.
I was inspired by a card I saw on Linda Heller's site. I hadn't done much sponging before and she had some very good tips for creating this sky.
First I stamped the trees from Wonderland 3 times full strength with Basic Black Archival ink. Then I filled in the gaps with the "stamped off" ink to create some dimension.
This was all on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White. I tore the bottom 3/4" off the bottom before I started stamping.
I sponged the whole piece with Soft Sky, then I did around the edges and in toward the middle with Marina Mist. I sponged Night of Navy around the edges, and finished with just a touch of Rich Razzleberry.
After the ink dried, I glued the stamped piece to a base of Heavy Whisper White and stamped the greeting along the bottom right edge using Memento Tuxedo Black.
I glittered the trees with Dazzling Diamonds over touches of the 2-Way Glue Pen. It is quite sparkly in person, but the glitter never photographs well.
On the inside I stamped the greeting with Tuxedo Black, then stamped over it with the sprig stamp from the set in Encore Silver ink (purchased at the craft store).
I want to remind you that tomorrow is the day that the Online Extravaganza Sale begins.
I hope you'll be able to take advantage of these great prices and get some things that you've been wanting!
I will be back tomorrow with more details on the Extravaganza -- and the Flash Sale which will only be tomorrow, Monday, November 23.
