The theme this week is Snowflakes
shades of things to come
Clear deep blue skies contrasting the white snow
On that note I shall hand you over to
For my project for Snowflake week I decided to have another play
with Yupo and Alcohol inks and was pleased
with the light effect it gives.
I started by colouring my translucent Yupo
with various layers of Ranger Alcohol inks,
the very last layer was the pearl mixative.
I die cut 2 different sizes of snowflake,
this one was with Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers die
and I also punched out some small stars for the centres
The larger snowflake was cut using a Memory box die.
I also cut a couple of snowflakes out of kraft card
and embossed the centre star shaped cut out
of these with white embossing powder
with some fine silver glitter added.
My card blank was then stamped with snowflakes
using VersaMark and clear embossing powder
on the edges and then Tumbled Glass DI
was added with a large brush.
I had a trial lay-out of the positioning of the snowflakes
before stamping “Let it Snow” 3 times
in Versa-Magic Ocean Depth ink and
then brushed with Perfect Pearls mica powder.
After the trial positioning of the snowflakes
I decided to layer the smaller ones with
white glitter card underneath.
These were stuck together using
foam pads adding extra depth.
The kraft card snowflake was given a
little Treasure Pewter to the edges
for an extra sparkle.
I hope you can see the light, sparkly effect of this
card as it was difficult to photograph.
