This week's MIM challenge is to make a layered background, using sentiment stamps.
I layered some "think big sentiments," and a few sentiments from "tiny treats: christmas" and "friendship jar holiday fillers." I stamped them in full strength, but kept them tone-on-tone to still treat them as a background pattern. To add some extra depth, I opted to stamp the hero arts envelope pattern background stamp over the whole red mat. I love that stamp so much - it's subtle, and adds the perfect amount of texture.
My snowman duo was die-cut from the "in the meadow" dies and propped up with foam squares. The tiny snowflakes to the left of the "merry and bright sentiment" are from lawn fawn's "making frosty friends."
I also dry-brushed some shimmer paint onto my little snowmen. They glimmer in real life, even though they may look a little dingy here...
I'm also entering this card into the CAS-ual fridays challenge - I used their lovely sketch for my card :)
