Is It Too Early For Snow?
Where I live we rarely get snow, so I'm quite happy for big snowflakes to appear on my cards. This snowflake is the Tim Holtz Blueprint snowflake, without the blueprint markings. I coloured just the snowflake with Neocoour II crayons and spritzed before stamping. This is version 4.
Version 1: Not enough crayon, not enough spritz.
Version 2: Changed to Gelatos. Again, not enough crayon.
Version 3: Back to Neocolour II. Note to self: ensure stamp is properly clean, then the bits that you don't want to show won't show.
Version 4: Neocolour II again. The cleaned stamp was still damp so more of the colour stuck to the rubber, giving a much better result!
The sentiment is stamped in Brushed Pewter Distress Stain.
I'm entering this into the One Layer Christmas Card challenge, Anything Goes with a twist of Silver. Well, pewter.
I'm also entering into One Layer Simplicity Challenge - Whatever the Weather.
