Club Scrap Shades of Winter Blog Hop

Shades of Winter Blog Hop!!
Today I am working with Club Scrap's Shades of Winter.  So this is an absolutely perfect kit for me - it snows buckets here in Montana!!  For the last two days it has basically not stopped snowing.  I shovel and shovel and turn around to find MORE snow right where I shoveled!  It's crazy.  I had to venture out onto the roads today and I don't know what happened to all the plows around town - but they are slacking on getting the streets plowed - I was never so happy to get back home and feel safe and sound once again!

So my inspiration was the gorgeous snowflakes in this kit.  I made 3 versions of cards using the snowflake images.  All three cards used similar technique with a bit of spin on each one.

Versamark ink
Embossing powder
White acrylic paint
Embossing tools (or improvise)

1.  Ink the background of the card front using a similar color ink as the background or black.

2.  Use versamark and stamp images, use embossing powder and heat emboss images.

 For a bit of twist on this dark blue version - Draw a diagram on the front of the card like this: 
Then stamp the teeny tiny snowflakes along to lines - creating a large snowflake - doing this method you can create as large a snowflake as you want.

For the red version of this card - I stamped the smaller snowflakes in the shape of a Tree.  You could to this for various shapes like candy canes, bells, ornaments, etc.

3.  Next I used a white gel pen and drew lines from the snowflakes up to the top of the page, creating strings that they hang from.

4.  Next I used some embossing tools with different sized heads to create little dots along the 'string'.

I also added dots to the large snowflake filling any gaps between the little snowflakes I stamped.

I think these turned out pretty good - you can do a number of different designs with the dots on the strings.

Thanks for stopping for more great stuff -
