Creative Expressions DT Call

Despite being away for two weeks and still amid the school holidays I was determined to get my entry into the Creative Expressions DT Call. I love their products and have been lucky enough to win their monthly competition a couple of times and it would be amazing to be part of their team.

The brief for the DT entry was Texture. So for my card I used a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder to create the brick background on black paper and highlighted it with silver ink before stamping the window from the Creative Expressions Lost Garden Stamp set and embossing in silver powder. I cut out the window to reveal the stamped scene behind, which I had highlighted with Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Powders. For added texture I used Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Black Embossing Powder with added Mica Fragments around the window.

And now its back to crafting for Christmas!!

I hope all your viewers click on the photo to see the enlarged version of this beautiful card. The texture is phenomenal and your use of the silver makes the moonlight look like it is lighting up the woman and the window frame. Truly spectacular!
