It's all...

...Black & White.

The Stampendous "Snowy Postcard" has been put to use again - this time I used some WOW 'Sparkling snow' embossing powder on some basic smooth black CS.

I just love the way it has come together and I feel that it was more masculine than the other finishes I've tried...
 ...so I kept the decoration very simple with a touch of black ribbon and a digital sentiment (by Lynne Salmon).

I haven't done an awful lot of heat embossing until recently (I had put my heat gun away safely somewhere) but this stamp certainly lends itself to this technique...
...I am sooooooooooooo in love with this stamp - the detail is just amazing...
...even when you look more closely at the finish, the detail is still there.

Because of the way this embossing powder shows up on the black CS, I had a bit more of a play using some freebie bauble stamps that recently came with a magazine. I'll let you see what I've done when I decide what style of cards I want to add the stamped / embossed panels too.

But as far as this stamp is concerned - I think you'll be seeing plenty more examples.................................................................................
