2 different stamps, 2 different views.

Well as the title says this is using 2 Stamps by Susannah Style, which I picked up at Doncaster, and hadnt got round to playing with, well until Linda came round to play that is!
So having mounted one of the stamps so she could use, it, I just had to mount up the other, and of course, as they were both mounted up it would have been churlish of me not to give them a quick try!
At the moment I am enjoying my Mica play, so I stamped them both up, twice, with Flitter Glue, from Indigo Blu, on Landscape A6 card bases. Then one set I Flittered, and one set I mica'd both giving different results.

This one, was using Mica to dust the glue, for the design, then using the mica again to create a background of a late winter sun, just breaking though the misty cloud. I added some glitter under the feet for the crisp snow.
 Again the same stamp, but this time Flittered with Lancashire Rose. I then masked it off, and used the small trees and deer from the Katy Sue Designs Winter Wonderland Silhouette stamps to create a background, stamping with Pumice Distress ink, and again some glitter to create the snow lines.

This one is the Bauble stamp, again Flittered with Lancashire Rose, and the smaller bauble stamp was stamped with Versamark, and clear embossed.
I then coloured the background with Pine Needles Distress ink.

A much gentler version this one. Mica, and I also used mica to create the glow around the bauble. I used small amounts of clear glitter to some of the snowflakes that make up the Bauble. A small piece of gold peel off for the "string", and a small bow to complete the card.
