Die cut snowflakesPosted: October 7, 2015 Filed under: Snow Drops, Snowflake trio | Tags: Penny Black creative dies 9 Comments
Although this card is very different to the forest card I last posted, the way it came about is similar. When planning class projects I cast aside a couple of panels of shimmery blue. I had brayered two colours of blue ink over the panels to begin then spread interference blue pearl-ex powder over the inking. I used a soft paintbrush to spread it out evenly and the finished effect was very shimmery when tilted in and out of the light. Sadly you can’t see just how shimmery here. I didn’t end up using the panels or technique in my class so I die-cut as many snowflakes as I could from the left over panels then cascaded them down a white card front and added a sentiment.

Oh, Heather, this is GORGEOUS! Wow, do I love these dies – they are so delicate and intricate, and the blue is stunning! Yes, I’m sure the shimmer is far more beautiful IRL! What a great class. Hugs!

The cascade is perfect — artfully random, which of course is not random at all. 😉 The blue is gorgeous, even if I can’t really see the shimmer, just imagine it.
Ultra Fabulous Card! Love all those shimmery wintery snowflakes 🙂
