Die cut snowflakes

Merry die-cut snowflakes Heather Telford

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.

    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.
