Your Next Stamp - DT Dare (December)

Today I am sharing a card as part of the new DESIGN TEAM DARE at Your Next Stamp. This is a fun challenge the design team is given and we show off some of the new release image with this challenge.

This month as things are a bit hectic for everyone, our challenge was simply ANYTHING GOES. That is something I can do at the moment.

For the outside of my card I used the December released SNOWFALL stamp and HOUSES ON A HILL die set to create a winter scene. I have been enjoying getting inky with my distress ink, however this time I changed up my night time blue for a more sunset look.

To created the sky I heat embossed the SNOWFALL stamps with white embossing powder. Then with the the Tim Holtz ink applicator I applied the my distress inks (Scattered Straw, Worn Lipstick, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans). The streaks across the sky were a happy accident. I used a baby wipe to clean up the ink that was on top of the embossed portion and it left the streak. I think it gives really cool effect to the evening sky.

For the inside of the card I used the FOREST FRIENDS stamp and the sentiment is from the WINTER HOME set.

Now make sure you head over to the Your Next Stamp blog to see all of the DT members participating in this month's dare. You will want to leave a comment over at the YNS blog because one lucky commenter will WIN a stamp set of their choice.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a terrific Thursday!
