QF Nov/12 - Snowflakes Merry Xmas

click on image for larger view
And another card made with Quietfire Design's newest batch of Xmas stamps... I sure am getting plenty of SNOW!!!

I cut out a Spellbinders grand oval from some scrap cardstock to use as a mask/stencil. Stamped the image I got in a garage sale (PSX) through the mask/stencil with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Colored with a water brush and watercolor pencils, by flicking the tip of my moist brush against the pencil tip and then painting with the brush. Using the mask/stencil to sponge Distress Chipped Sapphire lightly around the edges of the oval, then outline the oval with a Pitt Metallic Gold pen.

With the drop out of the oval mask/stencil in place, stamped the snowflakes and Merry & Christmas snowflakes with Versafine Toffee and embossed with Queen's Gold.

Stamped the little snowflakes (from a previous Xmas release from Quietfire Design) with Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Opal.

Sponged the edges of the card with Distress Gathered Twigs and some Broken China

And it fits for these challenges:

Aud Sentiments Challenge  #68 Bingo: Word Merry, Emboss, Snow; 3D item, Word happy, Bling; Ribbon, Word Joy, Die Cut.
