So Many Snowflakes for As You See It Theme Challenge


so many snowflakes 1

It's Friday again and time for another As You See It Challenge! This week it's a theme challenge and the theme is In the Air. We can use as the subject of our project something we would see 'in the air'! Here's the Challenge banner:

as you see it challenge #258

I surveyed my stamp sets and all the obvious ideas were there: birds, balloons, butterflies. But I knew that my Design Team mates had already beaten me to those ideas! So I looked for something not so obvious and I found the Snowflake Wishes stamp set, but more to the point, it's coordinating die set, So Many Snowflakes Dies!

I envisioned some watercolouring before die cutting, some silver foil and some ink blending on the background, and here is what happened:

  • On a Coastal Cabana card base, I added a layer of the Mirror Finish Silver Foil from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack.
  • From the same type of silver foil, I die cut several of the designs of snowflakes.
  • On watercolour paper, I used a Water Painter to water colour Pool Party and Coastal Cabana in layers and dried the paper with the Heat Tool.
  • From this, I die cut several more snowflake designs.
  • On a layer of Basic White cardstock, I blended some Pool Party and Coastal Cabana ink diagonally using the Blending Brushes.
  • I added the snowflakes as you see above, using glue dots.
  • The sentiment, from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set, was embossed in silver on Basic White cardstock and die cut using the Seasonal Label dies.
  • Some Mint Macaron Genial Gems were added to finish off the design.
I've been preparing for my 2021 Jul/Dec Mini Catalogue Launch tomorrow and preparing many samples from the catalogue to display on my event page. Most of these are from CASing the catalogue, while some are my own designs. I thought I'd post them here for your own enjoyment:
