Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well. Happy Canada Day to my Canadian followers!
I have a Christmas design today, in non-traditional colours. I enjoy making Christmas cards, it's fun to get started on them early. I love snowflakes and used the beautiful hand drawn Snowflake Set by Designs by Ryn. But I'm not ready for snow for at least six months and we are currently enjoying a lot of warm weather. We've also had more rain than normal in June, the grass, trees and flowers love it.
The background started from a large sheet of mixed media which I sprayed different colours of Dylusions paints.
Next I stamped snowflakes from Snowflake Set using different colours of Distress Ink and embossed with clear. The white embossed snowflakes were last and you can see that some of the detail was lost when I embossed over embossing.
The beautiful die cut snowflakes are by Spellbinder (S4-433). The largest layer was painted with Radiant Gels by ColourArte. I also added Twinkling H2O's over top of the Gel (after dry) and also painted the other layers with the paints: Sky blue, Wisteria, Jasmine and Icicles (which is clear over the white flake). I added some rhinestones to finish it off.
If you enjoy Designs by Ryn's stamp designs you will find inspiration using them at her Facebook Page and at her blog.
I hope you enjoyed a colourful Christmas design in July. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
