'tis the Season

I wanted to try the stamping with paint technique for the Make It Monday challenge at PTI. I had tried this before when I was new to stamping and I wasted a lot of paper for nothing. lol My daughter the artist is always raiding my craft supplies. All I could find was silver paint, not a color I work with often. I chose the snowflakes from the PTI Friendship Jar Holiday set and stamped a row across a scrap of cardstock. It worked! I used the paint to color in the candy canes from the same set. Inks and Copics are easier, but it was fun to try something new.

Here's the PTI challenge if you'd like to try this technique.

I'd also like to enter this in the "Silver" DYSU challenge. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd have 2 entries for a silver challenge. lol
