Winter Pool Party
So for this card I wanted a cool and fresh look, minimalist in colours. To create some interest in what might otherwise have been a plain card I played with intensity of colour. The large snowflake was stamped in Pool Party ink, as were the smaller ones around it, but for the smaller ones I "stamped off" on scrap paper before stamping on my cardstock. This way what goes on the cardstock isn't the normal, full load of ink and you get a softer image. Over the top of this I embossed the sentiment in white, and around the edge I stamped the small snowflake again though this time using the Whisper White craft ink. My Whisper White ink pad could use some reinking, but I didn't want the outside snowflakes to compete for attention with the stark white sentiment in the middle so just used it as is to get a softer look for these snowflakes too.
