ABC Christmas Challenge....

.......Just in time by the skin of my teeth for this fortnights ABC Christmas challenge I is for Indigo, Ice & Inspiration (photo inspiration) What gorgeous colours!

Not the greatest pic of my card I'm afraid, just couldn't seem the capture the colours and shimmer. In real life the blues look darker/stronger and the whites ....well whiter!

The background is coloured with distress ink Chipped Sapphire & a blending tool. The stamp was then sprayed with water and stamped onto the distress ink, then blotted with kitchen towel. This lifts off some of the colour leaving white areas. Then stamped over the image again this time inking up the stamp with the Chipped Sapphire to add a dark image roughly over the white areas. This whole piece was sprayed with Crafters Companion Spray & Shimmer and mounted onto Doodlebug sugar coated lily white card and dark blue Bazzill card. Two lengths of white organza ribbon to finish and there you have it. The stamp is by Creative Expressions.
