Just popping in to Wish you all a Merry Christmas.
My Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year.
Snowflakes is our last challenge of the year at Try it on Tuesday - where has this year gone!
Another Christmas card for me, I used texture paste through a TH stencil, sprinkled with white EP and left it to dry before heating with a heat gun. I used Speckled egg distress spray for the background, I like to dab with kitchen towel to move the ink, but it still retains that sprayed/mottled look. I heat set white EP as an edging for my panel and then sprayed Shimmer spray for a gorgeous sheen, which of course doesn't show in the photo!
I cut two snowflakes - one glitter card, the other from silver Angel fibres that I'd stuck onto pearl card and slightly off set them to add some depth and added a large crystal. 'Believe' was originally cut in white glitter card, but didn't show well, so I rubbed it with glue and added blue glitter, the little snowflake was cut with off cuts from the large snowflake.

Try it on Tuesday and there's still almost another week to join in, we'd love to see you there.
Anyhow, after seeing lots of inspiration last year using the Sweet Poppy Snowflake Bauble, I bought it this year as I knew I would be able to make some quick cards with it. The stencil is so detailed it doesn't need a lot, so there have been a few makes with just a greeting stamped inside the bauble.
However on Saturday, I decided to have a play with different scenes inside the bauble. This little scene (stamp has lost it's packaging and I'm not sure of the maker) was stamped with Versa Fine Clair Twilight and there's lots of snowy glitter on there too, but it doesn't show in the picture.
I really do like this stencil and it so versatile and I did a few with Artistic Outposts Snowy cabin.
