Using Eileen's range of Clearsnap inks, I stamped the Holly all around the edge of a 5 3/4" square piece of card, in Hydrangea.
Then I inked around the edge to create a frame using Uniform.
I stamped out the gorgeous Polar Bear onto a piece of white card that was 5"x2 1/2" using Onyx Black Versafine, and then tore strips of card to create the snowy scene, and bring the picture to a 5" square. Using a paper distresser, I distressed all the edges, with the exception of the snow layers that would be hidden.
I inked around the edges of the snow with the same two shades of ink, and adhered all the pieces to the Holly background.
I added a little of both shades of ink to my craft mat, added a little water, and painted in the sky. I took a piece of kitchen roll and dabbed the wet ink to remove some, and create snow filled clouds.
I added glistening snow with extra fine iridescent glitter and my Quickie Glue Pen. I also dotted snow around the sky and snowflakes as well.
Then with my Black Micron PN pen I added a few extra snow flakes, dots and a squiggly border around both layers.
I stamped out the Warmest Wishes sentiment onto a scrap piece of card, cut it out, and inked around the edges with Hydrangea ink.
To finish off I added the layers onto a 6" square white card blank.
This was such a fun project to do, and a great way of using up a few of those scrap pieces of card.
