I made a Christmas card with a snowflake image from the set Sparky and Friends. I loved the elegance of the flakes and decided to use them in an Ink Resist pattern. I started off by stamping the snowflakes with Champagne Encore Versamark. By using a colored pigmented ink, I could see where I was stamping the image. The white embossing powder covered the metallic easily. I then took a sponge dauber, and gradually added Tumbled Glass (Ranger Distress Ink), starting at the edges and working my way in to give the center a bit of a glow. When I got the color I wanted, I took a paper towel and ran it over the embossed snowflakes, and woila!! Finished. I then added some Viva Decor Transparent Gel to the snowflake centers with some Ultrafine Transparent Glitter.
I also added white Satin Ribbon (PTI), a button I got while in Missoula, Montana, some Silver Metallic String, and the "Joyeux Noel" sentiment, stamped with Smokey Gray Versafine, from the Sparky the Snowman JustRite set.
The back panel was scored with my Scor-Pal, with the edges being punched with the SU! Corner Tag Punch, and the bottom border was made with a Martha Stewart Border Punch. I also framed the snowflake circle with Spellbinders' Lacey Circle Die.
That's it for my project today. Be sure to check out what the rest of the gals have made to share with you today. I've included the Blog Hop list below. Have fun. I hope you're inspired!!
