The theme at Make my Monday is Snowflakes, Flowers or Foliage.  I’m trying to get into a C mood now (I think … watch this space, lol cos I’m bound to change my mind soon) and so I concentrated on snowflakes.
I used my favourite technique – resist – stamping snowflakes as a background on glossy card, sponging various shades of blue and lilac over the top, using a torn paper mask.  Trees were then stamped behind the hills, followed by a little snowman family, the great text (Stampinback) and lots of snowflakes (stamped in white and embossed in Hologram powder). I finished it off by sponging Snow white Dabber around the edges.

<KENOX S1050  / Samsung S1050>
It’s a simple little card but it was fun to make for a change. The snowmen were stamped again, coloured and glued in place over the original stamped image. I rarely do glitter but this one called for it and I think Christmas is a time when glitter is great!
Here’s a close up to show the holographic effect – bit blurry but that’s because it’s suddenly gone very grey – again!
