Frosty Snowflake Panel

Hi guys

I'm writing this post surrounded by cold and flu tablets, cough medicine, tissues, honey and lemon, and I've been in my PJs all day feeling sorry for myself.

But I wanted to come back and share another of this year's Christmas cards before the year is out!  And this is another that was made to order.

On a panel of white cardstock I masked a vertical strip and began by stamping and heat embossing a few snowflakes in white.  I then used the emboss resist technique and blended three colours of Distress Ink over the top.  I then stamped a few more snowflakes in pigment inks and splattered some shimmer using a mix of mica powder and water.  The shimmery splatters can be seen better below.

I removed the masks and stamped the 'Merry Christmas', and then heat embossed 'Sister' in silver and die cut with it's co-ordinating die.  The panel was then popped up on fun foam.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Uniko - Stunning Snowflakes; Clearly Besotted - Many Mini Messages, Sugar and Spice (and co-ordinating die)
  • Ink: VersaMark; Distress Ink - Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord; Versa Color - Lilac, Lavender, Grape; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White, Metallic Silver
  • Mica Powder: Honey Doo Crafts - White Opal
