Snowflake collage

OLW snowflakes

Cheryl is hosting the One Layer Wednesday challenge this week and her theme is Snowflakes. A nice thick layer of snow would be welcome here because we have a treacherous layer of ice that needs to be covered up.

I realized yesterday that I hadn’t created any Christmas cards using my collage technique so I played around and made a few. I had a few card bases with masking fluid already flicked onto them so when I decided to make a collage Christmas card I picked up one of the bases complete with ready made snow. The post-it masks were place before I flicked masking fluid on and then remained there while I created the collage. The order for the collage was:

  1. stamp letter background in teal zeal
  2. stamp snowflakes in versamark and emboss in clear powder
  3. sponge in blues and pink
  4. stamp extra snowflakes in blue and pink
  5. remove masks and masking fluid

Have a great day, keep warm and stamp some snowflakes if you get the chance.


Stamps:  All is BrightNoel, Hello Winter Letter Background(PB)
Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Teal Zeal, Angel Pink, Versamark(Tsukineko)
Also: Clear e.p., Masking Fluid
