Lee posted a challenge about a week ago, to use snowflakes on a card. I made two of them. The second card has snow that I drew in with a white gel pen. This card came about from an unusual circumstance. I was playing around with some of Tim Holtz Stain and water on a piece of printed cs. However, I over did it with the stain and the water and rather than heading to the kitchen for a paper towel, I decided to blot all the excess moisture onto a piece of white cs that was on my work table. After I peeled the two pieces apart, the blotter piece had the most interesting pattern- kind of like snow and trees in a forest. I went with that!
I decided to stamp some trees and a platinum heat embossed sentiment. What I did for the trees was to color the stamp itself with Copics-I did thump two colors on the branches. Then I lightly spritzed the stamp with alcohol, and stamped. I then added some Stickles, and was thrilled with the result! Oh- of course the little snowflakes in the upper right corner were glued on too. LOL Now onto card #2.
I receive Michelle Zindorf's blog in my mailbox and I saw a fascinating card that she brayered. I have tried that before but I haven't mastered it- but I thought maybe I could achieve a similar look by sponging. What do you think? Close enough?
HERE is the link to Michelle's card and tutorial. Here is my card.
