Hi friends! We are winding down to the last couple challenges of the year at The Paper Players. This week our fearless and amazing leader Nance is hostess, and she has a simple theme challenge for us: Snowflakes. Love that cool challenge badge!
I've been trying to pay more attention to my backgrounds lately, and had lots of fun creating this one. I just wish I was a better photographer and got a better picture of it as it is much more sparkly IRL. First I sponged the background with several different ink colors. Then I sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. Last, I used a stencil and embossing paste to create my snowflakes, and while the embossing paste was still wet I sprinkled it with glitter. Once that was dry I layered on my die cut scene all in white.
I thought I'd share a boo-boo, too. I took so many picture of this card trying to capture the shine, and paid no notice to the fact that a couple of my windows were laying on the snowy hillside. There must have been a good party at that house!
I'm also playing along with the Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
