Winter scene

Hi all! Here is my card for the winter card challenge and blog hop over at Paperwings.


I stamped the tree from TAC's Mountain Scenery onto white card stock in Jardin Moss, then stamped again to get the ghost look. The sky is daubered on with sky blue chalk ink and the falling snowflakes are done using the speckle stamp and white craft paint. I also added a little sparkle using my stardust gel pen to some of the snowflakes after the paint dried.

The oval is cut out and embossed using a nestabilities die. I added a thin layer of glue from the quickie glue pen and sprinkled some large white glitter particles around the perimeter. Then I sandwiched the two together and layered it on a piece of blue bling card stock from Bazzill. The blue snowflakes are out of bling paper, too. I added a blue pearl to the white one for some added dimension.

Supplies:
Stamps - TAC Mountain Scenery and Speckle
Ink - Palette Jardin Moss
White craft paint - spread a thin layer on a piece of paper and dip your stamp into it..
White glitter
Bazzill Bling card stock
Stardust gel pen
Inspiration for this cards came from Kitty747 over at SCS.
