Snowflakes at Try it on Tuesday


 


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!

The rest of the DT have some fabulous inspirations, so please pop over to the main blog to find out what they've been up to.  Details of the challenge and some dates for your diaries are also included.

Thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it,

Have a great day, Avril xx

I am loving this big snowflake. What a pretty card Avril. Hope all is well and I bet the twins are getting a little excited for Christmas. They may not fully get Santa yet (or they may) but I bet they love the lights and sparkle of the season. Enjoy. Hugs-Erika

Super effect on your background. Brilliant idea too to put glue on the sentiment and rub over with the glitter. I have not had a good year health wise and have spent most of it being transferred round the various departments at the hospital whilst they try and work out what is wrong. Presently with Rheumatics and awaiting yet another appt. Have been told that I have Raynaulds phenomimum which is playing havoc with my fingers so hence not much blogging done. Hope we all have a better yr for 2022. Hugs Mrs A.
