I couldn't resist buying a couple more Card-io stamp sets at Doncaster last weekend. These stamps are from the Starstruck set. Although they are designed as a Christmas set coming with a star and a deer I would use some of the animals for other occasions. I used a MFT stencil for my hill, colouring the sky using a dry wet wipe and a blue ink pad. I added some little snow dots and crooses with a white gel pen. I then stamped the animals and sentiment. Now I actually bought the sentiment stamps from someone on Facebook. She had never used them and I was lucky to spot them as I almost bought them at Doncaster and as she was selling them cheaper I couldn't resist. I added a little silver glitter acrylic pain to the snow.
One of the things I love with crafting is that when something doesn't work out there is often a way round it. I stamped the star with white ink and it hardly showed so I stamped over it with Versamark and heat embossed it gold. I still wasn't happy so I used the same shaped star in a Memory Box die with gold glitter card and added it on top.
