this month's challenge theme.
Tami shared water stamping on the Hero Arts blog and I wanted to try it out since my Distress inks are almost always on my craft table.
White cardstock was inked distressed with a variety of Distress inks. I misted the Snowflake background stamp with water then stamped the distressed piece. I love the ghostly effect which is so different from clear embossing.
It helps to have your heat tool nearby as heating the water stamped images brings out the "whiteness", and it helps dry your surface before you sprinkle on the embossing powder.
The "celebrate" sentiment is from a discontinued Hero Arts set, embossed with white detail powder. I rounded off one corner, added a few pearls and some ribbon
and my first holiday card is done.
