Good morning, ouch its Monday morning and my first day at work after a week off so I'm not a happy bunny this morning! Before I go and earn some pennies, here's a card made for this months challenge at Lavinia Stamps where the theme is 'Add Glitter'. Sorry about the pics, the colours have really bleached out unfortunately.
I began by stamping out the scene using Memento Grey Flannel ink, I masked the fairy and the little cottage and then used some torn paper masks and a die cut circle mask to create the background with distress inks (Tumbled Glass and a little bit of Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood) and a shaving brush, I also stamped some tiny snowflakes with water but they aren't showing up in the photo. Once I removed the masks I coloured the images with distress markers. Next came lots of glitter, for a really frosty sparkle. I used a White Sharpie pen to add some snow to the trees and sprinkled with Glamour dust. I used a quickie glue pen to add more glamour dust to the house, tree and the fairy. I applied some Rock Candy Crackle paint to the path and along the front of the scene and again sprinkled on some glamour dust - you can see the sparkle a bit better in this pic.
