Good afternoon to you all. Here is my offering for the Totally Papercrafts Challenge #43 - Snow and Snowflakes.
The tree baubles are from the delightful Mouse stamps from Crafters Companions. There were stamped onto white card and coloured in with Twinkling H2Os and over sprayed with Crafters Companion glitter varnish.
A non-stick craft mat was splodged with several different colours of distress ink and water was sprayed on it. The card was applied in a random way and dried and then re-applied and dried until a pleasing effect was obtained. Whilst still damp a small amount of cosmic shimmer mica powder was applied to give a bit of sparkle.
A fir stamp was applied at the top and bottom of the card in green ink and then over stamped with Versamark and gold embossing powder applied and heated.
Two different sizes of snowflake stamp (Judikins) were randomly stamped with Versamark and Sheena's White Wow powder applied and heated to give bright white snowflakes.
To assemble: The card was trimmed to size and layered onto gold shimmer paper. The green ribbons were positioned and bonded into place and then the whole thing bonded onto an A5 dark green base card. The baubles were bonded in place over the ribbons and the matching bows attached.
That's it. The entire story. I hope that you feel that it fits the challenge.
