Snowflake Hello

It's my turn to host the TLC- Technique Lovers Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.
My challenge is called:
For this one, we will be stamping with the front and back side of our stamps.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by looking through my stamps to see what set would work well for this technique.  I pulled out this Snowflake Flurry set and got out my Misti to start stamping.
  • I picked out some fun snowflakes I wanted to stamp with and positioned the back part of the stamps, facing up in my Misti.  The image part was pressed against the door of the Misti instead of facing outwards.
  • I inked up the backs of the stamps with some Distress Oxide ink and pressed onto my cardstock.  I repeated that process until I was happy with the inking.  The colours I used were:  Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac, Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers
  • Next, I cleaned off the backs of all the stamps and turned them over to the image side to stamp them over their matching backsides.  I used the smallest snowflakes from the same set, to fill in the empty areas.  
  • I glued the inked up panel onto a piece of black cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base and set it aside.
  • I die cut the hello and the shadow and glued them together.
  • I glued the die cut sentiment over the snowflakes and then finally, added black gems to the center of my snowflakes.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
I hope you give it a try!

What a wonderful idea for a different technique and it worked brilliantly Karen with that beautiful assortment of colours stamped with the back of each stamp and then stamping the image in the shape which looks great! x
