WSC 56

I played in Beates Weekend Sketch challenge!  The snowflakes were die cut and embossed using Spellbinders Snowflake Wonder dies cut from Basic Grey Blush DP.  The narrow strip and DP under the main image panel are Basic Grey Figgy Pudding.  SU!'s new in colors Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss go perfectly with Figgy.  The edges of all layers were scraped with an old toothbrush using Versamagis Jumbo Java chalk ink and the textile embossed layer was inked with Versamagic Niagara Mist.  I also inked the die cut snowflakes with Jumbo Java ink before removing them from the die after running them through to emboss them.  The top part of the snowflake is raised on foam dimensional tape and a rhinestone brad was added to the center.  I can't remember who the chocolate trim and fibers are by.  Have a wonderful start to your weekend, I hope to fit the Inspiration Challenge in tomorrow around Rocket Football.

  15. WOW this is pretty! I love the layers to the snowflake with the rhinestone added -- terrific! You make the fibers look terrific, too. I gave up on those and gave mine away on my blog. LOL Everytime I tried to use them, they just looked messy. Your card has a terrific vintage feel. LOVE it! (I am on your Christmas/winter card list, right?) :) Kel
