The first month of 2015 is already halfway gone. Time goes by very fast! Fortunately the hectic times are over now, well at least I hope so, and I have more time for fun things like crafting! Now it's time for a new Simon Says Monday Challenge. We're in the middle of winter and want to see something inspired by this cold season.
I was inspired by the December 2014 Tim tag. This background technique is so cool and also lots of fun to do. I don't have the new Stain Sprays yet, so I used the regular Stains and put some of it into a spray bottle so that I could do the technique. These were still on my desk and I couldn't resist to give it another go. This time I also used Glimmermist for more sparkle and depth in color.
The color palette is very wintery, but the working title of this challenge is 'Winter Stamping' and I have enough winter stamps to fit that criteria. I love those beautiful stamps from Teresa Collins: Tinsel Company. With the snowflakes I stamped in Watering Can Archival Ink.
What's more winter like than snow? I therefore added with Embossing Paste and Snow Dylusions stencil some snowflakes. I also painted the edges and the metal foil covered letters with white paint. All those cool colors needed some warmth. So I stamped the Snowman on a piece of Kraft cardstock and colored him in with serveral Distress Markers. To give him the glittery snow effect I applied a layer with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.
