Merry and Chilly
I love all things snowy and winter sparkly. Probably because I live in California, and see very little snow. For the holidays, I tend to decorate with a plethora of pine garland, with sparkly white fake snow on it, and pine cones, and plenty of snowflakes as well. So, you know that I just love this stencil from Dreamweaver called Heart Ornaments.
The entire design was paste-embossed in Regular Embossing Paste on a light blue panel, and set aside to dry. When dry, I replaced the stencil over the design and sponged ink over the surfaces. I created a "stencil" from a border punch of drips from acetate, and used that to mask off the hearts except where the "snow" would be pasted on. Dabs of more paste were added to the branch and needles, and sprinkled with Stampendous Multi Crystal Glitter.
Once dry again, the panel was matted in white and layered onto a red card, with the addition of a simple red bow. The sentiment was pasted similarly, and can be found on the Stencil with Style site HERE.
And that is how I play in the snow!
