What we have here is a combo challenge of using a virgin stamp set and making a text collage BG. I started with vintage book and music papers and laid them on the sticky side of a mailing label. I cut the rectangle with a large die. I selected distress inks to randomly add more color with the wrinkle free distress technique. Filled in the gaps with blue glitter EP. I stamped the tree set onto a gingham recipe card and used the accompanying die. They were too light so I flipped the tree stamp over and used the flat side to make the shadow onto the BG. I decided to try for a pseudo scene with the zigzag stamps, also virgin, depicting snow and mountains. A dotted EF added more texture and I embossed snow here and there with white and blue glitter EP.

A mailing label, weren't you smart! I described my travails with glue in my write-up. And I even have full page labels!! Love the texture and stamping - and the glitter. That was a very early technique I learnt from a book but I don't often use it. It's such a great way of filling in those itty bitty blank bits. I love the soft vintage look of this.

Lori this is FAB! You went all out with this and made this technique your own. Using that sticky label was genius! I love the bits of glitter here and there to fill in spots (another light bulb moment!) and the embossing really added some fantastic texture. I can tell you had fun with this. Thanks for playing today.
FYI-My samples did come together pretty quickly
