Wintery Flourish

The theme for this month's Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge is winter.  I don't have any Concord & 9th stamps that are really winter stamps, so I improvised by using the Flourish set to make some wintery foliage.

Happy Holidays card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Concord & 9th
I did my stamping on kraft cardstock, starting with a white pigment ink layer.  The white images were stamped over with colored dye inks.  So pretty!  It gives the images a snow-capped look.  For extra snowy sparkle, I coated the berries with a clear glitter pen.  I filled the space at the center of the panel with the "happy holidays" sentiment from the Happy Words stamp set.  The words were stamped in gold, then heat embossed for a nice pop.  The finished panel was adhered to a cream card base.

Materials Used:
Flourish and Happy Words stamp sets (Concord & 9th); Delicata Golden Glitz, Memento Luxe Wedding Dress and Memento Pistachio, Bamboo Leaves, Rhubarb Stalk, and Rich Cocoa inks (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Gold embossing powder (American Crafts)
