Penny Black and Craftaway


Penny Black this week is sentiments only and Craftaway Sunday's theme is Let It Snow - Oh please no!!! No snow for me please - it is a howling gale up here and that is bad enough!!

For my card I stamped and embossed snowflakes with snowflake tinsel powder - gave a lovely shimmery finish. I then masked the snowflakes and stamped more with Dew Drops ink and embossed with clear powder.
Using heat resistant acetae I stamped small snowflakes and embossed with white powder.
Cut into a strip and attached to the embossed blue strip which I had already added

Using my new Nesties Label -( Loving them!! ) I cut two co-ordinating labels and stamped my Penny Black sentiment onto one then layered. Added my little blue photo turn and rub ons to fnish.
