Black Prince...


This card was made to Kazan's beautiful sketch this week from 2Sketches4You (see left), but also meets the criteria for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge which calls for a 'snow' theme, using at least one PB stamp. The stamp I used is 'Prance'.
Black cardstock was 'Cuttlebugged' with the Swiss Dots folder, and 'distressed' with Cotton White Staz-on, a white gel pen and Versamagic. I tipped fine white Art Institute glitter onto the surface of the ink while the Prance image was still wet.
Silver thread wrapped around to echo the white distress lines.
Snowflakes cut with two different Kaleidopunches.. Amethyst and Citrine. Also added a snowflake brad from stash, and some faux gems.
Frame around stamped image hand-drawn and cut.
Making Memories 'Heidi' alphabet rub-ons
