Snowy Church for Merry Monday

It's a Merry Monday morning.


Wendy chose our challenge this week.

I didn't have a church stamp, but my friend Ruthann had bought one
when we went to a scrapbook show last Fall.

I borrowed it and went to work.

First couple of tries didn't make the cut.

But stamping with white and embossing did the trick!

Then I added some chunky embossing paste and heat set it from underneath.

Check out the fantastic inspiration pieces the Design Team has come up with.

Hope to see you in the gallery!


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Bonnie, what a beautiful wintry scene, love the dramatic effect of the white embossing on the Navy Blue background, it looks amazing.
What a lucky break that your friend had this beautiful stamp, it's so sweet to let you borrow it to make this card.
Thank you for sharing.

This card is striking. The dark blue and white are a strong combo and so eye-catching. The white chunky paste looks like it added a lot and would be a good new (for me) thing to try. Plus I love that the theme was around a church...nice feeling.

I really don't need to see any snow now that my daffodils are blooming... but your monochromatic card is just lovely, Bonnie. That blue is so elegant and serene.

That's the kind of friend to have, Bonnie, because her stamp and your creativity made an elegant card. Chunky embossing powder, huh? I might have to get some of that.
