Peace Hope Joy

Today I'm playing along with the most recent CASology Challenge. The theme is FESTIVE. When I think "festive" I think snowflakes and all of the magic and wonder of the holiday season---a perfect fit for this brand new sentiment from DeNami Design called Peace Hope Joy.

I've seen a few stampers in blogland use this technique of stamping images first in white ink and then stamping them again (slightly offset from the first image) in color. I thought I'd give it a try with the snowflakes on this card, and I have to say, I really love the results! Here's a closer look:

I also added in some little dots with a white gel pen for a little extra something.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today! If you'd like to learn more about this technique Julie Ebersole has a video HERE and Dawn Woleslagle has a video HERE. (A big THANK YOU to these girls for their inspiration!) can check out DeNami Design's new release HERE!

I like this technique and you nailed it for sure. The shadow look really sets off the snowflakes. The pop of pink looks good with the kraft cardstock.
