This one nearly stopped it being made altogether! More about that later though.
The main image was from a session of me playing around with a stencil and inks to see what effects I could create. I made my favourite into this card.
I used the Snowflake Cluster stencil, blue ink and an Ink Duster to create the background. Then I stamped over it with vertical rows of the Snowflake Corner. A Kaleidacolor ink pad in Blue Breeze gives it the different shades of blue.
When I've done a pattern like that I hate to cover it up, so I just added a German Christmas sentiment to it and a thin black mat.
The side panels are a Spellbinders tag cut in half ( Fancy Tags 2) and the background is embossed with a Spellbinders Grand M-Bossibilities folder (Garden Lattice).
Before I go, I have to share the "fun" I had with this card.
I'd just made another card using the Snowflake stencil and wanted to start this one. One problem - the stencil was nowhere to be found. I'd only just been using it and my craft room had been tidied the day before so I couldn't understand what I could possibly have done with it.
Can you see it?
It was totally camouflaged on some old lace curtains, that were on my Pilates Performer, in the middle of my craft room. Why did I put it there? It's a miracle that I ever found it!!!!!!!!!!!
