INDIGOBLU december challenge "all that sparkles"

hello crafty friends! 

it's 21st of december and as usual there is a new challenge at INDIGOBLU challenge blog! it is almost the end of the year and as we celebrate the NEW YEAR with fireworks and champagne, we thought "ALL THAT SPARKLES" for a theme will match this mood perfectly! all you to do is create a card / layout / mixed media project, using INDIGOBLU stamps

here is a bit of inspiration from me -

to create this card i used the following INDIGOBLU products -

MERRY CHRISTMAS TREE A6 red rubber stamp


and here are some more close ups:

i used silver card base for my project. then i stamped the tree image, on white cardstock, using  MERRY CHRISTMAS TREE A6 red rubber stamp with TIM HOLTZ watermark ink, applied STAMPENDOUS! aged silver embossing enamel and heated the set.

to colour the background i used various TIM HOLTZ distress ink pads - PEELED PAINT {for the tree}, DRIED MARIGOLD and SQUEEZED LEMONADE {around the star}, OLD PAPER, TUMBLED GLASS and BROKEN CHINA {for the frame around}.

i stamped the sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock, heat embossed it and coloured it with TIM HOLTZ broken china distress ink. then i adhered it to my card using mounting foam tape.

to finish off my design i added silver rhinestones to some of the snowflakes.

i hope you enjoyed my post today!
