StampARTic challenge.........................


Hi,

For this week's StampARTic challenge they would like to see a Birthday card with a winter theme and to include the colour lilac/purple. I have coloured my image with distressed inks. I have mounted her on a Maya road swirl which I have painted with rangers dabber paint in silver and added glitter. The snowflakes are stamped with cotton white stazon.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

love
