Flurries in the Air


Morning.  We have just been blasted with a big dose of cold and winter here in Southern Ontario so I have had snow and snowflakes on my mind.  Two of the challenges at Splitcoast this week are 'snowflake' themed so I set out to create a card.
I started by using the snowflake stencil from Simon Says Stamps and randomly stamped circles over the stencil using Distress inks in Broken China, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers.  They look like little snow bubbles.  After stamping the circles, I went back in and rubbed more ink over the top.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it into a tag.

Also adding my card to these challenges:
Addicted to CAS- die cut
Little Red Wagon- all purpose card
CASology- bubbly
Simon Says Stamp- ice inspiration

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  Hope you are staying warm and cozy in your neck of the woods.

Supplies:  stamps; Daisy Bucket, circles (made the largest from foam, middle size-??, smallest from the eraser on the end of a pencil/ Distress inks/ Stencil- SSS/ Die-namics die/ twine
