Because Winter arrives today, our newest challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option to Use Snowflakes. (I sure hope we don't get any snow this winter here in Georgia.) Our sponsor is the always fabulous Rick St. Dennis. I've used Mrs. Frosty:
I embossed Coredinations cardstock with a Tim Holtz Snowflake embossing folder, applying Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink directly from the pad to the embossed snowflakes. I colored Mrs. Frosty with Spectrum Noir Markers, adding a bit of black Wink of Stella to her eyes, mouth and buttons. Her body has a coating of clear Wink of Stella. I cut her out with a Scalloped Oval Nesties, dusting it with blue chalk before removing it from the die. The sentiment is a Cricut cut, also coated with clear WOS.
I'm entering these challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge - Anything Goes; Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Winter Inspiration; Brown Sugar Challenge #125 - Christmas; Stamplorations December Challenge - Stamps and my favorite Technique (October Challenge - Embossing); and CASology #126 - Snow.
Again, I kept it all flat for ease of mailing. I love the texture of the embossing and the look of the distress ink. Happy Crafting, my friends!!
