~ Making the snow sparkle ... ~

For the last 2 weeks I have been receiving emails from the Online Card Class 'Christmas Holiday Bootcamp'. This is one of the techniques shown.

You firstly emboss your chosen cardstock, I used a snowflake embossing folder and put it through my Big Shot. Then apply 2-3 colours of distress inks using a blending tool. Once dry spritz with a pearlised mist, the class said to use a homemade perfect pearls mist in a mister but I used a white pearl mica mist and that worked as well.

As the background worked so well and I already had inky fingers I made a selection of backgrounds and tags ready to use on some cards.

I've got a busy week ahead of me ... I'm out for lunch twice and then a work Christmas meal on Friday night so I might not fit much crafting in this week, we'll have to see.

Happy Crafting!
