Welcome to our 2nd challenge of 2014 at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
This week, our Laura made us this inspiration board, and our theme is ice!
Let's see what you'll do with it! The design team are all using either Glitter Ritz or Distress Glitters this week. I used the opportunity to get me some Clear Rock Candy distress glitter!
I really liked the first picture at the top of the inspiration collage, and so that's where I started.
I found the background birch trees paper in a new BoBunny paper collection called Woodland Winter. I cut out a panel and before attaching it to my card, I ran some glossy accents along the edges of the trees, then dipped it into my rock candy glitter. I used the glossy accents also to adhere the glitter to my punched snowflakes. My deer dies are Impression Obsession, and my sentiment comes from Kelly Purkey's Let It Snow stamp set.
The papers in the Woodland Winter collection are all wonderful, so while I had it out, I decided to do a 2nd card for this challenge.
I chose this subtle one (it has some script and a pinecone at the bottom left corner) and applied some falling snow with my Signo white pen. After removing the stencil, I went back in with a glue pen and applied glue to some of the flakes, then immediately dipped the panel in more Clear Rock Candy glitter. My snowflakes on this card are Penny Black's Snowflake Trio ones, and they are also liberally coated with glitter. Again, my sentiment comes from the same Kelly Purkey set as above.
Heidi has contributed another of her $50.00 gift vouchers to the Simon Says Stamp store for the lucky random winner of this week's challenge!
