Visible Image - Snowflake Grunge

Hey peeps, happy Sunday!  I've been making Christmas cards with the Snowflake Grunge set, and I've got one to show you here.

I stamped the snowflake across the centre of an A5 card, then cut the card down the centre so that I had two panels each with half a snowflake.  I stamped the Snow word, added some Lost Shadow on the snowflake for dimension, then stamped the snowflake cluster stamp with Lost Shadow.

As you can see, the Distress Ink didn't stamp the outline snowflake very clearly.  I'd stamped these freehand, so I couldn't line them up again, and anyway Distress Ink isn't the best ink to use with fine outline stamps.

So I inked up the stamp with Versafine Onyx Black and stamped it so that it overlapped the patchy stamping.

Then to jazz it up, I splattered some Gansai Tambi white gold paint over it.

I mounted the panel onto mirri card, then onto a 5x7 card base.

It's got a fabulous shimmer to it when the light catches it (which is difficult to capture with a camera!).

Click on the image for more details about this stamp set, and more card inspiration.  I'm off to use the other half of the snowflake!
