Snowflake Collage

Good Morning!
Hope you are doing well in your part of the world.
Meet today's card.  
I'm trying to get a few more made before it's time to mail them all out.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock.  I placed the panel into my Misti and inked up the snowflake from Colorado Stamp with some Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink, sprayed with some water and pressed onto my paper.  I added some Peacock Feathers to just the very center of my snowflake.  I kept moving the panel around until the whole front was stamped.
  • Next, I rubbed some Salty Ocean DOX ink onto my glass mat, added some water to dilute it and watercoloured in the background around the snowflakes. I dried that all using my heat tool
  • Now it was time to add a bit more detail, so I used the Overlapping Texture from AALL and Create and randomly stamped around the snowflakes.
  • I splattered with white using my Posca pen and set aside to dry.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the Santa's List set with some Versafine Clair and backed it with a small piece of white.  I pop dotted that over the bkg. and mounted it all onto a heavy white card base.

 Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I love the way you have filled the whole background with the pretty snowflakes and added the lighter blue background Karen, and the bits of extra stamping in the background together with the simple added sentiment finish it beautifully. x
