Merry and Bright card

 
Today's challenge is to use snowflakes on a card or layout at The Paper Girls. Will you join me? There's still a change to pay homage to old man winter! I, for one, are ready for him to leave and for a nice warm spring to come on in! I hear good things come to those who wait....
 
I aimed to create a blizzard effect with the glimmer sprays, clouds and snowflakes. I sprayed and wiped the color around to create the effect. I'm new to these sprays so I'm not sure if I did it exactly right, but I'm pleased with the results. It's much more sparkly in person. The camera just doesn't do justice to the shimmer. The snowflakes also have a 3D kind of effect.


Supplies:
  • white pre-cut card base - Joann's
  • cloudy day embossing folder - Stampin' Up!
  • anna griffin cuttlebug
  • ranger black archival ink
  • stamp from imaginisce (snag 'ems)
  • Ditto glimmer spray -blue
  • Sheer shimmer spritz: sparkle - Tsukineko
  • Snowflake brads - recollections
  • ribbon - Stampin' Up!
  • crop a dile big bite
Ok, I'm off to a stamp expo with my friends! I'll share my haul and my make 'n takes when I get back, but I am really trying to buy with intention so it might not be much.

Stay tuned... when I get back I am going to have my first giveaway of some crafty goodness for national craft month!!!
