Today starts a new biweekly challenge over at DRS designs. The challenge was to use one of the awesome postage stamp images as the main image. This was an exercise in thinking outside the box because when you first view these stamps you might not realize how versatile they are. I have to admit that I first only thought of them for my envelope art but what an awesome way to coordinate your card and envelope. Have a look:
I started by creating my bg paper using the snowflake bg stamp, an essential glue pad and glitter. I stamped my snowman image and colored it with copics. I accented the snowman with a spica glitter pen and painted shimmerz on the snow. I stamped my sentiment in the middle of the frame. I did pop the snowman up with pop dots for dimension. I also sponged the image while in the nestability die.
