The Hero Arts Flickr group held another 90 minute scramble on Saturday. The theme was to use an older HA Christmas/Winter stamp that hasn't been used in a while and show it some love again. I have this very old HA snowman that I haven't used in a long time. In fact it might be one of the first stamps that I ever bought!!
I stamped him and colored him in. Then I used a trick from Jennifer McGuire - use rubber cement to form a mask so you can add color to the background! It worked perfectly! After covering the snowman in rubber cement and letting it dry, I added tumbled glass and faded jeans distress ink. Then I just rubbed away the rubber cement and my little snowman was protected from the blue inks. I dry embossed the card base with a swirl pattern that reminded me of snow swirling in the background. A little candy cane twine to finish it off!
Since this stamp is pretty old, I am entering this into the CASology challenge this week where the cue card is OLD.
Thanks for stopping by!!
