A Black and White Christmas with Woodware

Evening Everyone.
Have you missed me?
I've made it through my first few days back at work, and I have to admit that it wasn't quite as bad as I had expected, even though I was doped up to the eyebrows on painkillers lol.
As I was supposed to have been on booked holiday for at least part of my period of sickness my lovely Boss has rearranged those dates for me so that I am only at work part time for the next three weeks, so it will ease me in gently.
How nice of him is that!!
I must admit that I have been struggling to get back into blogging for one reason or another, but I have missed a few of my favourite challenges so that seemed a good place to start.
This week over at Woodware the Team are sharing their Black and White Creations for Christmas, very stylish don't you think!
As this is one of my all time favourite colour combos I searched through my bits box and come up with the ingredients for this little offering.
The Snowman stamp is an old Stampendous one, I think, and had been stamped and embossed onto some black card stock that bleached beautifully.
I painted the panel with thin undiluted bleach and then painted the Snowman with white Pearlex paint.
I added some Silver Star Gelly Roll Glaze pen to the background section of the panel using a wet paintbrush to spread it around the image.
The large snowflakes in the main background panel (stamp unknown I'm afraid) have been stamped onto the same black cardstock with thin bleach.
I tapped my Versamark inkpad around the edges of both panels and then embossed them with clear powder.
The finishing touches are a couple of Glitter Domes and a greeting from a Woodware Clear stamp set FRCL075 Polar Bears.
I did have a great time making this, in fact I got a little carried away and made a second card so maybe I will post two cards in one day.
Haven't done that in a while lol.

  1. Good to have you back, the stamp is a Stampendous rubber stamp and is available in cling or wood mounted. Lovely card I think the clear embossing gives it an icy feel.

  2. Hi Kim, hope you're feeling better, sounds like we have both had a rubbish time. Love that snowman!
