December's Stamping Sensations Challenge

As the Christmas madness of shopping, wrapping and all the other stuff that we do this month is upon us, we have a nice easy 'Anything Goes' theme at Stamping Sensations!
And although a nice easy theme please remember we are a STAMPING challenge so your entry MUST have stamping as the focal point. If you don't follow our rules you won't be in with a chance of winning our wonderful prize this month which is a very generous £25 voucher from Be Creative.

I did a batch of these - quick and easy - just what we want when we have lots of things to do!

The trusty 'snow' embossing folder took a bit of a battering - but I confess it is definitely the one that I go to every year!

Masked off the moon (£1 coin! - knew the change that dear husband leaves lying round would come in useful) and then brushed Faded Jeans DI.

A few different tree stamps also in Faded Jeans, and then took a damp paintbrush and dragged the colour below the trees a bit.
Details of the prize and lots of lovely inspiration from my teamies are over on the challenge blog!

Please visit their blogs and leave them some love!

A beautiful and peaceful winter scene. Love all the nuances of blue, with the shading under the trees as a nice and effective detail.

This scene is full of atmosphere Viv and I love the fact that you haven't taken the blue right up but faded out above the moon, and the snowfall embossing is perfect. A gorgeous card! x
