Sunday Stamper: Snowflakes.

After my day playing with dark spooky Halloweenness it was lovely to see Hel's challenge on the Sunday Stamper this week which is Snowflakes! I have just blown my pocket money this month on Tim's new snowflake rosette dies, so I made a pile just using some cartridge paper. Then I cut a circle ring out of an old cereal box and glued them on.

I love the texture these snowflakes make and I'm sure that I shall be using them a lot this Christmas!

They didn't look cold enough just plain white and so I mixed up two mini misters with Shaded Lilac and Salty Ocean reinkers. water and some cosmic shimmer powder in pewter and lightly sprayed over the wreath. Then I put dabs of glue on the snowflakes and sprinkled silver and blue bedazzles over them. I think I may do another one and add holly leaves and berries for contrast. It is a lot easier making these with a hot glue gun although I burnt my fingers in the excitement of putting them together! I hope you all have a lovely Sunday, I have two of my girls and my grandson and lovely son-in-law coming to dinner, can't wait to see them all! x
