Lovely as a Snowy Tree

Today I have another one of the projects we did at my monthly techniques club.  I wanted to showcase the off-set stamping technique and a couple of different ways it can be used to achieve different looks.  Today's project uses the technique to create the look of snow on a stamped image.

Christmas card featuring the Lovely as a Tree and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets with sentiment from Greetings of the Season (retired).
To start, I masked the bottom portion of the Whisper White card stock using a torn post-it note.  Then I stamped the tree using Memento black ink.  After rubbing the embossing buddy all over the stamped tree, I stamped the tree a second time using Versamark ink, using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position my image slightly higher than the black image.  I also stamped the spatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge set several times all over the top portion of the card stock.  I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged the entire area with Lost Lagoon ink...this makes the "snow" magically appear.  To add more depth I sponged the edges of the card stock using Island Indigo ink.

To finish the card front I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment from the Greetings of the Season set in Versamark and then heat embossed in pewter (retired) embossing powder.

On the inside I stamped a greeting from the long-retired Many Merry Messages set in Island Indigo ink and the tree using Lost Lagoon ink.
