Monoprint Background with Trinity Stamps

I love this new silhouette stamp set from Trinity Stamps! I like to make monoprint backgrounds with acrylic paints, and this was a perfect opportunity to use Seasons Greetings.

I started with one of my monoprints, made with a Gel Press plate for my background, and figured out where I wanted the "snow" and where I wanted the "trees". I moved my stamps around the print for awhile, before I decided which direction to make "up." Up is actually turned 90 degrees to the right from this photo.
I stamped my images using my MISTI and VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The MISTI helps the ink adhere to the painted background. I then cut a frame for my little scene, using a Sizzix circle die, and stamped my sentiment below. I added texture to the frame with an embossing folder after the sentiment was dry. I added some sequins and snowflakes from the new Blizzard Shaker Embellishment Mix for some added bling.
Kind of a fun look!
