I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

White Christmas - the new theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges
just perfect for this time of year. 
But how will you interpret it? 
What about using mostly white on your card? 
Then again you might choose to link a project to the seasonal musical 'Holiday Inn'. 
Then again "White Christmas" is an Irving Berlin song reminiscing about an old-fashioned Christmas setting. 
Heck whatever you fancy really. 
But for me a white Christmas is all about snow.

So as I suggested this idea I decided to use white acrylic paint for the TH snowflakes on acetate and laid it over a stamped image of Santa Claus, a La Blanche stamp inked with coffee archival and stamped onto kraft card. I used white acrylic paint and distress ink to paint in some of the face. The sentiment is a Just Rite stamp (I keep forgetting I have these) and a ribbon to finish off.

Please take a look at the wonderful creations on the catwalk, gain some inspiration, show us your stamping and come join us.
There is always a fabulous stamp as a prize.

Enjoy your Sunday.
