One of my goals this year is to develop my stamping skills, and in an attempt to learn, I've been blog hopping. I came across Roni Johnson's blog. Roni is currently blogging about different techniques and using those techniques to create a calendar, so I decided to join in. The January technique isn't stamping as such, but it looked gorgeous, was new to me and so I thought I would try it.
Here's the result:
The technique is about painted foil and embossing, to create a stunning rich glimmery background-it really is a great technique!!.
The images are free downloads from the Graphics Fairy. The little snowman is a black and white image that I coloured using distress inks applied with a sponge to give a tint to the image, like an old fashioned hand tinted photo.
