Snowflakes

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend.  I'm very drawn to snowflake images and today have a card featuring them.

I used Design by Ryn's- Snowflakes stamp in the background and beautiful die cut snowflakes by Joy. 



The background was a 'mop up' sheet from a project when I used Midnight Dylusions ink.  I sprayed green and white Dylusions over top,  spritzed with water and let it run.   When dry I stamped Snowflakes with Cobalt Archival and Mowed Lawn Distress inks.

The die cut snowflakes by Joy were coloured with Glimmer Glaze.   The sentiment is from a great Penny Black set - Christmas Cheer.  The little branch is from a McGill punch.



Thanks for your visit and have a great day,
Shirleyx

Hey Shirley, I agree with one of the other comments about how it's refreshing to see colourful snowflakes. the pairing of stamp and die cuts is amazing. You have such a good idea for finding similar images to go together. Hugs!
