Walking In A Winter Wonderland--PP274

December 6, 2015

It's Sunday and time for a fun theme challenge at The Paper Players!  I am the hostess this week.  Although, I am not a big fan of winter, I do like snow for Christmas.  So, I chose "LET IT SNOW" for the theme.  Growing up in Indiana, I saw enough snow to last a lifetime, but there is something magical about the first snowfall.  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My base card is white card stock.  I cut a piece of watercolor paper and distressed the top section with Salty Ocean and Broken China inks.  I stamped the snow flurries with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  I cut two white snow drifts using the Lawn Fawn "Hillside Borders" dies.    I used Iced Spruce Distress Ink to stamp the trees.  I attached the snow drifts and trees with Stampin' Dimensionals.    

I added Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in two sizes for fun!  Wink of Stella was added on the tress for extra glisten.  My sentiment was stamped in black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  I am sorry that I don't know where the stamp is from!  I added a fun foam backing on the watercolor panel so it had a lot of dimension.
