Craft Stamper Reminder - White Stamping


Craft Stamper's December challenge is underway, and this month we want you to use white stamping.  White ink, white paint, white heat-embossing - your choice.  You can include other colours of stamping, but the focus should be white stamping.  Our sponsor this month is Rubber Dance Art Stamps:


and here's the prize for one lucky winner:


That's not all: the winner gets their card published in a future edition of Craft Stamper (so hold on to your card!) and is invited to be a guest designer in a future challenge.

You don't have to be a subscriber to Craft Stamper magazine to enter the challenge, you just have to use stamps and follow the theme.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy :)

I created a masterboard for my card by stamping snowflakes with Versamark and heat embossing in white, then I sponged Distress Inks all over the masterboard.  I water-stamped some large snowflakes, then stamped 25 December in Brilliance Moonlight White.  If you look closely, you can just make out  some of the letters from December down the right-hand side.  I also stamped some snowflake swirls in Versafine Smoky Grey, and some smaller snowflakes in Brilliance Moonlight white (you can see a couple in the top corners - very subtle).  I squiggled a border with a white gel pen and added a snowflake charm and chain.  The sentiment is Clearly Besotted.  Here's a close-up:


So now I have another 5 panels from my chopped-up masterboard for quick and easy cards - bonus!  Here's one with the 25 December stamped in Chipped Sapphire:
