Brusho Snowflakes


Meet today's card.
It's not a secret, but I love stamping with snowflakes.  I don't know what it is about them, especially since I'm not a big fan of winter.  Maybe it's their intricate design.

I recently picked up Tim Holtz's Weathered Winter set and wanted to play with it.
I got out my MISTI and positioned the corner snowflake first.  I painted it with a little diluted Brushos, sprayed with water and stamped.  I repeated that process until I was happy with the look and went on to stamp the other two snowflakes.
After stamping the sentiment from The Stampin Place, I used some drywall tape to stencil the background.  I cut the piece out using a stitched die.
The finishing touch was the beautiful blue gem for a bit of bling.
