Imagination Crafts Art Stamps

Hello there crafters, new month, new products, I'm using the gorgeous new Imagination Crafts Art Stamps.
 I started with a A4 size piece of acetate and stamped the Imagination Crafts Winter Robin half way down and half way in from the edge of the Acetate using Stazon Ink Pad.
I wanted to create a couple of borders for my matting and layering so chose two Starlight Colours and painted just the edges of a white Super Smooth with Starlights Silver Gold and a piece of black card with Starlights Black.  Left them to one side to dry a while. 
I created a background using a piece of Super Smooth 6" x 6" and stamped the Christmas Words using Versamark Clear Ink pad and a Gold Embossing Powder, stamping in one area first then embossing then filling in the blank areas one at a time until the whole page was covered.

Here are all the layers I used for my matting a layering...........

Now it was time to layer up the stamped image by turning it over and dotting some Cosmic Shimmer Glue randomly on the solid black areas of the image so they could not be seen once layered.


(Looks like snow, tee hee)

Then turned that over and laid it over the background so that it lined up with the left edge of the card. 

Once that was dry - it only takes a few minutes - I cut down the acetate in line with the stamped background.  I layered that up onto the black, then white, then gold, then wrapped a piece of black and gold ribbon from my stash and place the whole thing onto a 7" x 7" card.

I created another set of smaller layers using the Gold and Black Starlights for my sentiment which I used from the Hobby Art Poinsettia Stamp Set, again using the gold embossing powder to keep the theme.

Thanks for dropping by the blog and hope you enjoyed it today.

Love, Jan -x-
