New Stamp Man Challenge

The new challenge is up at The Stamp Man and this time we want to see you use a technique you have never used before. This one had me racking my brain as I normally have to try something the minute I see it. I scoured my Craft Stamper mags to see what I could find and I remembered seeing a salt technique so that is where I started although the embossing bit went a bit all too wrong. After several days of playing I finally settled on this card. I will have to say it is not going to be a favorite technique for sure but I got to give it a go. The technique originally used Salt with embossing but my results time after time for that were very daunting so I switched it around a bit and used the salt with inks instead(think I saw that one in Craft Stamper too). It had a nice effect although very hard to see in a photo. The snowman is stamped and cut and wording is stamped on the background using white Stazon.
Now there is more inspiration on The Stamp Man Challenge blog then we would love to see your projects. Don't forget to tell us what technique you used in your post.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

My Materials list:
White Stazon ink
Border Ribbon (the Stamp Man Shop)
