Don't You Just Love New Stamps?

I received an order the other day from Impression Obsession and I was so impressed with the service. The image I decided to play with today is called Starflake. I first stamped my focal image in Night of Navy and I tried not to center it. I then stamped the same image in Sahara Sand ink off the edges. I used a couple of shades of blue pencils and OMS to color the flake and then added gems for a bit of sparkle. I matted on a light blue and then onto a Sahara Sand card base. My sentiment is from Inkadinkado as are the tiny little flakes. The tiny flakes are accented with an opaque white gel pen.
My inside sentiment is "There's snow place like home for the holidays". Not the traditional Christmas colors, but I think that it works. So, I guess I have officially started Christmas. What a relief! I don't want to jump the gun too fast as their looks like there will be some amazing new stamps to play with after the Gina K. release party tomorrow night. If you get a chance, stop buy the Gina K. Designs link over at Splitcoast Stampers at 8:00 p.m., Thursday for some fun contests and amazing inspiration! Have a wonderful day!
