Snowy Greetings

I picked up this fun Snowflake Cluster stencil from Simon Says and wanted to get a chance to play with it.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by placing a piece of white cardstock onto my Make Art Station and then positioned the Snowflake stencil over that.
  • Next, I sprayed my panel with some water, then sprinkled on some Brushos.  (Brushos are highly concentrated crystals of colour that are activated by water.) 
  • I used a baby wipe to dab over the stencil to help spread the colour of the Brushos, covering the panel, then removed the stencil and let the piece dry.
  • I die cut the sentiment next.  The script with some white and the outline with a dark purple to match the card front and glued them together.
  • When the snowflakes were dry, I splattered with my white Posca pen to add a more snowy effect.
  • I glued it onto a piece of pale purple cardstock, then onto an A2 card base.
  • I popped the sentiment over the background and added 3 silver gems.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Such beautiful and bright colour using this pretty SS stencil Karen, and the technique has worked brilliantly, also a lovely sentiment which looks great with the background shadow die cut from purple which coordinates perfectly. x
