New England Snowfall


        When I saw Asha's card it looked familiar, then I remembered I have a stamp from the same range so CASE-ing Christmas this month was even more fun than usual.

      I stamped the house from Chocolate Baroque onto plain white card and stamped a mask onto sticky notes aswell.  After cutting out the mask and covering my house I stamped snowflakes using Versamark and clear embossed them.
     I tore a piece of paper to make another mask to go across the bottom of my card and coloured the sky with Distress Inks Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concorde.
     Once coloured the sky was spritzed with water and blotted, then spritzed with a water and pearl mica mixture to make it sparkle.
     The mask at the bottom was moved down and across slightly, then I used Faded Jeans to create another snow bank but kept it pale.
     The house is coloured in using watercolour pencils and a water brush, the small tree has a gold garland wrapped around it which was made with a gold glitter pen. The large tree has red glitter decoration made using Stickles, the snowflakes also have a small clear Stickle centre to them.
     The greeting is from another Chocolate Baroque set stamped in Archival Cobalt and clear embossed. It is all mounted on a piece of white card that has had the edge coloured blue with an alcohol marker then it's on a 7x5 white card blank. Small and thin enough for standard postage but still with a little sparkle for the season.
     Come and take a look at Asha's card at CASE-ing Christmas, visit the Design Team to see what they were inspired to create and then come and join us with your project and you could win a prize in our random draw on the 25th of October.
