Frozen Fractals stencils drew me straight in; these snowflakes are so delicate and beautifully detailed. I lightly sprayed the back of two of the stencils with a temporary adhesive and laid them on a panel of white card.
I then blended
Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot ink (inspired by the background of this card of Kristina Werner’s) over the panel before spritzing with water from a mini mister and splattering with perfect pearls.
There is nothing like the joy of lifting the stencil to reveal the detail left by the
stencils – so beautiful! I added a few white gel pen dots and starbursts and then set the panel to one side while I worked on a simple sentiment strip to go on top.
I stamped one of the skinny strip sentiments from
Fa La La in Versafine Onyx Black ink on white card and trimmed to a skinny strip. A foam mounted this to a piece of scrap card that I’d blended Picked Raspberry ink over and trimmed to leave a border around the sentiment strip.
A added the sentiment strip with
foam adhesive over the ink blended panel and then in turn foam mounted the panel to a white card base. As a final touch, I added a few sparkling clear sequins. SUPPLIES
