SHOPPING OUR STASH #434 - Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


Hello friends and welcome!

The new challenge starts today at


and as I'm sure you've guessed, we would like to see

snow in some form on your projects!

Here's what I came up with:

and the inside:

I bought this gorgeous snowflake tree stamp at least a year ago, and

I'm only inking it up now. (For Shame!)

I first stamped and heat embossed it in white EP. Then I sprinkled

Magenta Nuance powder dyes in Cerulean Blue and Purple and

used a water mister on it. The hardest part is setting it aside to dry

on it's own. Once it was, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed

it in white also. To ground the tree, I simply drew some 'land' with a white Gelly Roll pen.

Since I had the items out, I made another panel!

This one uses Violet and Raspberry powder inks:

and the inside:

I hope that you can find time to play along this fortnight in our

snow challenge at Shopping Our Stash!

For more ideas, do check out what my teammies created

for your viewing pleasure. Thanks for visiting.

I hope that you have a great day!

What brilliant color combos for your stunning backgrounds, Chris! That tree is wow-amazing and it just comes alive in white against the colors. I love how you complete your insides, too! I recently played with my powdered inks again and I had forgotten how amazing and fun they are! (I even left them out to play some more which almost never happens!) Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Take care and keep well! Hugs, Darnell
