A challenge I've been meaning to join in with is 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown and this week's challenge is:
This week it's a technique we want to see and the technique is Triple Time Stamping. This is such a great technique, it's simple but has the wow factor! Dawn Olchefske produced a great video tutorial for this technique which you can find here. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
For my card I decided to use my Andy Skinner "Winters Tale" stamp set and thought of going with monochrome. I first cut my three layers of white cardstock and lightly attached them centrally on top of each other. I then inked up the individual stamps with Black Versafine and carefully stamped onto the triple layer. When I was happy I then detached the layers and cut black mats for each layer.
Before I added the top two layers to the bottom one I added some
Bakers Twine and a button. I was going to pop the finished item onto a 5x7 card blank but it was a little small for the blank so decided to add another layer but off-set them which I think makes it look a little more interesting. I added some Glistening Snow-tex to areas of the card which is very hard to photograph but think you might be able to see a little twinkle!!! lol The sentiment is a Papermania stamp PMA 10038.
Thanks for stopping by.
