I then used the flourish stamp with Versamark spritzed with water to stamp onto the background. It lifts off some of the colour to leave a negative resist. I use this technique a lot when making backgrounds. If you have not done this before there is a tutorial for you to follow.
- I over stamped the same swirl stamp using 2nd generation Pine Needles (I did not want it too dark)
- The tree was stamped with black pigment ink and embossed with a sparkly embossing powder.
- I sponged some versamark along the base of the tag and embossed with white powder.
- Then I finished off with some snowflakes, the swirl and Noel all from Spellbinder dies.
