Hello Crafty Friends!
Last week I shared the first weekly inspiration project. This week my inspiration was snow as we had some beautiful snow on Wednesday and a wee bit on Thursday. The snow was a perfect excuse to use Brett Weldele (of Stampers Anonymous) stamp set, Blizzy the Happy Snowman.
Just like last week's project, I started with a large playing card.
It was covered with two layers of white gesso and Faber-Castell's blue Gelatos was applied. Blizzy was stamped using Ranger's Archival ink in Jet Black:
Blizzy was colored using more Gelatos. Next, Let It Snow was stamped and Faber-Castell's Big White Brush Pen was used to create small snowflakes all over the card:
Tim Holtz' Snowflakes stencil and Ranger's texture paste was used to add three large snowflakes. The finishing touch was a dash-dot-dash frame using a fine tip black marker.
It will be interesting to go through all of the altered playing cards at the end of the year. It is a fun project thus far as I can find inspiration from the week or from how I feel at the moment or whatever! If you decide to do the project, please drop me a line as I would love to see your weekly creations, too!
Thank you for stopping by and have a happy crafty weekend!
