ATSM #173

Good evening folks and welcome to a post to announce a new challenge over at ATSM.
This week as that Christmas deadline approaches, our theme is -

HOLIDAY

You don't need to make a Christmas card but it's as good a reason as any!
Here is my DT project.


I had this background panel left over from an earlier project (here) but this time I stamped some large snowflakes and used white EP to emboss, then stamped some smaller ones and repeated the embossing. To add even more depth I also stamped the small snowflakes in one of the blues I used for the the panel. The panel was coloured using  some DIs, blending with a soft brush to create this gorgeous effect. 
A greeting was stamped on a strip of vellum and embossed with white EP and mounted on a scalloped strip of lilac card. To finish I mounted it onto the same lilac card mount before attaching to the base card.
This week we are sponsored by the lovely Kylie at Happy Little Stampers.



She's offering a Prize of a $15 gift certificate to the winner chosen by the DT.
Please check out the rest of the team and their fab creations for more inspiration and join in!
