Hi there! Time for another Woodware USA challenge! This week we were asked to do some background stamping, which I haven't done in a while. I went through my Woodware sets and decided it was time to start bringing out the Christmas stamps! The mischievous boy from Winter Tots caught my eye, so I thought it would be fun to stamp him on the focal piece and stamp lots of snowball splatters to make my own patterned paper. I colored Master Tot with my Copics and gave him a pile of snowball arsenal to complete the scene. I used my Nestabilities for the square/scalloped square and some dark blue cardstock from my stash. I came across some old (one of the first supplies I bought, actually!) holographic paper by Crayola that I actually picked up at the dollar store. I wanted to see what it would look like embossed, and it came out pretty neat! You can't see too well from the picture, but it's embossed with snowflakes and it has a rainbow sheen when you move the angle of light. It's a little busy though, so I covered it with a strip of red cardstock and added a green gingham ribbon on top of that. To the bow, I added two blue buttons tied off with some twine. The bow looks better at this angle:
The snowballs were stamped with Colorbox ink on white cardstock and I like that it's a subtle background, but hopefully it makes you chuckle when you look closer. :) If you have time to do some background stamping this week, we'd love to see your creation! Be sure to link up here:
