Watermarked SnowflakePosted: November 17, 2010
This snowflake is from the now retired SU set “Snowflakes”; the first set I ever bought. I have parted with various sets over the years but I think I will always hold onto this one. I remember after moving to Canada the excitement in seeing snowflakes falling that were clearly 6-pointed shapes. It isn’t always obvious but occasionally they will fall on your coat or mitt and you can see the intricate design for just a moment before it dissolves.
To create this card I masked off the panel I wanted to colour then stamped the snowflake in versamark and embossed in clear. The sponging was all done in Brocade blue fading off into nothing on the right hand side. I then dropped water on the area I had stamped and sponged . What I didn’t realize until I removed the masks was that the water would seep under the post-it note masks. I don’t think it matters too much. I searched through my Christmas sentiments until I found one which was whimsical enough to match with the fluid style of the card.
Thanks for dropping by.
