Happy New Year!

Bring on 2008 with special greetings to all of my stamping pals for the very best in the New Year! I created this black and blue challenge card on New Year's Eve with you in mind.
One of my resolutions for 2008 is to enjoy using some of my hoarded stash. This beautiful black washi paper is a great example--oh how I love speciality papers! The image is created with Heidi Swapp stencil and a stamp from Tim Holtz collection by Stamper's Anonymous. They arrived in December so I am glad to finally play with them. I used distress inks and homemade glimmer spray for the image. On the order of Tim's #6 tag but I have was doing it before his great tutorials...so you may get even better results if you follow his instructions.
Thanks for stopping by and a very Happy New Year!


  1. Gorgeous colors. I can see why you were holding onto that gorgeous paper. I love the layers and texture you got in your focal images.

  2. The paper is so beautiful and striking, just as your finished card is! BEAUTIFUL!
