Snowflakes

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

 Going from sunny 80 degree weather a week ago to rainy 49 degree temps today felt like it could have snowed.  My body is not ready for this -- at least not ready for such a sudden drop in temps, but I am glad to be wearing sweaters!


 I got to get a little messy tonight.  The background of my card was created by watercoloring with several colors of Distressed Oxide ink and some spritz of water.  The delicate snowflakes were made with a stencil I made out of Reverse Confetti Snowflake Trio dies which I layered embossing paste over.  The 'let it snow' words is a STAMPlorations phrase die.  I then added large, clear sequins for a bit of sparkle.  

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
