Stickers!! Really? What Ever Next Peel-Offs???

Haa Ha, bet you wonder what I'm on about?? Well it's challenge time over at Sweet Pea Stampers and this time we want to see your stickers and if ya brave enough you could even dig out some of those peel offs :D

We have two fantastic sponsors this time, Amy from the Crafty Purple Frog and Lynette from Sweet Pea Stamps who have provided a fantastic prize of 2 sheets of Decoupage and 2 rubber stamps respectively . I have to say this challenge left me completely cold. I've never been a hugh peel off fan and stickers aren't really my bag either, I wasn't even sure that I'd got anything in my stash so seriously considered copping out of this challenge. However, a quick rummage through a box of stash that I won from Hot Off The Press and I found some double sided stickers - yay, so that just left a stamp to choose which tbh wasn't too much of a task as I have some lovely new un-inked Christmas ones that I needed to use.

Now I know what you're all thinking - she could've used double sided adhesive sheets/heat embossed etc, etc... So just to prove that I actually did use stickers here's a picture of the sheet with several missing :D


So moving swiftly on, my card......


I created the backing using distress inks and then affixed the stickers and sprinkled with Glamour Dust before brayering them firmly into position. I then heat embossed the image twice and cut the deer and sentiment prior to decoupaging them. The snowflakes and swirls are from the same set of stickers, but I've added white flocking to them. This has given them the appearance of vellum.

Well you've seen mine, so what are you waiting for? Dig out those stickers and peel offs and let's see what you make.
