Snowy Days

It's Coming.
Maybe tonight at my house.
  
I'm talking about the snow.  Christmas is coming so quickly too so I have been super busy trying to get some cards done.  Here is the one I did today using a stencil, sponging and splattering.
I am playing along with the challenges at Splitcoast this morning.  A great place to go and get motivation and inspiration for me.  

I began by stenciling using my favourite stencil from Simon Says.  I stenciled the main panel using Peacock Feathers Distress inks then stenciled on another piece of cardstock using Salty Ocean Distress ink.  I cute the second piece and rounded the corners and stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts.  It is a modified version of the Spotlighting technique.  
I then splattered with some more Distress inks that I watered down and also some acrylic white paint.  
And all done in blue, of course!

Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- CHRISTMAS

Little Red Wagon- TECHNIQUE
(stencil, paint splattering)

4 Crafty Chicks- INSPIRED BY A CHRISTMAS SONG
