Less is More Challenge #334 Sketch 20

Here is the Less is More Challenge #334 Sketch 20



I could not resist this wonderful challenge.  The sketch is perfect for a new Poppystamps Die "Snowflake Breeze" that I bought on our stamping store shopping spree when at our Stamping Retreat in Vancouver, BC.  What a great time Loll, Susan, Christine and I had shopping together :-)



A very CAS design with the snowflake die the star of the show.  I die cut the snowflakes from my white CS card front.  Then sponged Distress Oxide Ink, Faded Jeans on an area of the white card base.  Glued the die cut snowflakes onto the white card front.  Before attaching the snowflake card front to the card base I spritzed the sponged background and snowflakes die with Tsukineko Frost White ink that I had added to water in a spritzer.  Very shimmery in real life.

After attaching my card front to my card base I added snowflake embellishments and popped up the sentiment.  For more sparkle I added silver Stickles to the center of all the snowflakes and Wink of Stella to the sentiment.  I wish you could see all the pretty shimmer and sparkle on my card.

Enjoy and thank you "Less is More" for a fun and inspiring challenge.

I am adding also to the June Rudolph Days Challenge: it is always Anything Goes.

Happy Stamping my friends.  Hugs..
