Make it Monday Challenge

This week over on Nichole Heady's Blog- Capture the Moment Betsy Veldman has a video on a great stamping technique, that I just had to try. I love Betsy creative style, she is just amazing.
The technique was second generation stamping, where you ink up your stamp image, then stamp it off twice before stamping on your project. It creates a beautiful background for your card projects, brings a whole new use for all your stamps. Watch the video and you'll see what beautiful results you can get. Here is my card.

The stamp set I used was  Snowflake Serenade  . I used Pure Poppy and Antique linen card stock, Dark Chocolate ink, Pure Poppy bakers twine, and my Tim Holtz Christmas dies, love these !!! I posted this card over at Two Peas in the stamping gallery and it was chosen as Featured Porject of the day!! First time ever, that I have had one of my projects highlighted, very exciting. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.
