Welcome and Happy 2017!!!
You might think I'm a bit crazy to say that my card today was a walk on the wild side for me. For years I've seen a ton of cards made by adventurous stampers who used "crazy" colors for snowflakes and while I loved so many of them I can't recall ever being so bold as to use any other color except white, silver or blue. Kinda sad really :)
Well, not anymore!
I started my card by sponging on a hot pink and lavender inks on a piece of white card stock. I then took a wet wipe and streaked the colors from the center to the outsides in a starburst pattern (which is a bit hard to see in the photo) and set that aside to dry while I stamped Mr. Snowman on another piece of card stock and gave him a snappy lilac and pink hat and scarf and fussy cut him.
After the background paper had dried I stamped our Snowflake Background stamp using the same pink and lavender inks. I stamped the Baby it's Cold Outside in lavender ink on white and sponged the edges with pink and layered it all together on a lilac folded card and added a bit of liquid pearls to the frost lines on the sentiment and in the corners.
I have to say, I'm liking my walk on the wild side and can't wait to try again!
Thanks for stopping by!
