Friday Feature – Jewelled Christmas

Posted by on November 29, 2013 in Annabelle Stamps, Christmas Cards, Embossing, Stamping | 4 comments

This week the Belles are showcasing the Jewelled Christmas Stamp set at AnnaBelle Stamps.


I had some fun trying a new technique this week – creating a marbled background with Adirondack alcohol inks onto glossy card stock. I decided to keep my project small as it was a bit of an experiment – so hence another tag πŸ™‚ I wasn’t sure if I could heat emboss over the top, but it worked a treat. I added some clear sprinkles to add some shine. The tag is nice and glossy in real life.
