Holiday Card Series 2017 – ice and snow effects

Hello Everyone,

Today I brought a card to showcase how you can achieve real winter feel on a card. I used the MFT Sketch Challenge as inspiration.

I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and die cut a mod rectangle from it. I sponged Distress Oxide inks (Faded Jeans and Salty ocean) on it and added Snowflake paste through a Snowfall stencil.

I die cut some Birch trees (Lawn Fawn die) from silver cardstock. I also stamped the cute images from the You Make My Heart Spin and the You Make My Heart Melt stamp sets. I used Copics to colour them and I die cut them with the coordinating dies.

Meanwhile the snowflake paste dried and I could stamp the sentiment on the bottom of the panel. I used a Pretty Pink Posh set for this and Gina K Designs Cherry Red ink. After that I assembled my scene. When everything was in place, I added Ranger Crackle Accent to the ice. It was the first time for me to use it and I was curious how it is going to look after drying. It really cracked as I expected and gave that cool icy feel.

I added a bit of Spectrum Noir Shimmer pen to the scarves and skating shoes, I emphasized the eyes and noses with a black glaze pen. A little bit of glossy accent finished it off.

I will upload this to the MFT Sketch Challenge #360.

I hope you like my card and will return soon for more fun projects.

See you soon,
