Not an easy one to photograph today with all that mica! I’ve started with one of my background stashes. Whenever I get inks out to do backgrounds I tend to make a few extras so that on a day like to day where I don’t have time to get all the messy stuff out, I have a fab background ready to use.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to create today so I had a rummage through my stash and found this fabulous background. It’s obviously been made using Cosmic Shimmer Ink Misters and the mica has made this beautiful pattern on it that made me think of a night sky. Aaah.. inspiration – one of my new stamps to play with this week is this lovely Santa on his sleigh stamp from Crafty Individuals.
The two are a perfect match! I wanted to make the most of the background, so a very simple design. Stamp the image in black Archival. Add a few white highlights and then create a border using black and white pens. This could easily be mounted into a lovely Christmas card.
This stamp is one a some new Crafty Individuals stamps that have just arrived in store that I’m busy getting up on the website hopefully later today!. Better put down those inks and get back to my website work!
