It is time for another 4 Crafty Chicks challenge and this week's "Twist" theme is Snowflakes! I got some new Snowflake goodies just in time for this challenge! The pictures kinda stink, we've had overcast skies all week.
I used a new Reverse Confetti set called SNOWFLAKE MAGIC and the coordinating dies for this card. For the base I played around with some alcohol & Water colors, I saw the idea on Jennifer's blog, here. I used some Cosmic Shimmer watercolors, just some pretty blue with a little bit of like a blue green and lots lotsa lotsa water (on watercolor paper, fyi)! Then I just flicked some rubbing alcohol from a paintbrush. When I liked the look, I used the heat gun to dry it a little, then flicked some more. I did this about 3 or 4 times.
It's kind of hard to see, but I used both of the large snowflake dies and a smaller die on this panel. I have a white cs panel cut the same size and adhered it to the watercolor panel, this let me stamp those snowflakes in Navy Blue on the white. I stamped the sentiment in silver and then using it's coord die, cut it out and popped it up in the center of the top flake.
To fill in a little more space I took one of the snowflake stamps and stamped some silver flakes in a few places. In the bottom corner I die cut another snowflake but this time with silver foil cs and then popped it up and added a blue button with silver twine in the center. OH and matted behind the watercolor layer is a silver layer of cs… it looked much better than gray!
That's it for me, be sure to check out what the rest of the Chicks have been up to,
