This month, I am excited to be your hostess for the Beautiful World Tour! You should have arrived here from Aleksandra's blog, but if you've happened here by chance, you should pop back over to the Flourishes blog to start at the beginning!
Because I love this time of the year so much, I thought that it would be fun to pose the challenge, "White as Snow" to the girls. Initially, I had plans to create an all-white card when I dreamt this up, but you'll see I quickly detoured pretty far from that!
Don't forget while you're hopping to leave comments for all of the designers along the way, because your travels could win you some free stamps! You never know which designer will have the random winning comment, so make sure you leave one at each of your stops!
As I said, I quickly veered off of my original plan, and created something accented by snow, rather than focusing on White.
I used the holly sprig from Naturally Merry, and coloured it with my markers. Then I stamped some flakes from the Handmade Snowflakes set in a light aqua colour, before inking the edges of my panel to distress them. The sentiment is from Winter Berries, and was designed by my fellow Beautiful World designer, the hugely talented Dina Kowal!
For my snow, I painted on a product called Snow-Tex. I found mine at Michael's, and it's so easy to use. Just be patient, and paint it on - it goes on lumpy and thick, just like snow! While it was still wet, I coated it with glitter - which adheres perfectly.
I wish you could see this card in real life, because it's so much more impressive. The glitter really brings it all to life!
That's it from me, so now it's time to head off to your next destination, sunshine-y Australia with
