In my mind, I feel like I should avoid ‘snowy’ cards when I’m working on Christmas in July projects… but here I am, sharing a snowy card inspired by today’s SNS Challenge word: WHITE.
Perhaps you remember that I had a bit of an oops with a bottle of White Dina Wakley Media Gloss Spray several weeks ago (see the card & read about it here). Since I had a puddle of white on my desk, I started grabbing papers & tags and assorted other things and dipped them in the puddle. I suspected that since it has a glossy finish it would be fun for a resist technique, and I was right! This card front was plain white Cardstock, which I dipped & dripped and splattered and left to dry.
I die cut the sentiment (Tim Holtz Festive Words) from Glitter Cardstock and added some color blending to the solid layer behind it. I found a couple of Scribbly Snowflakes left over from last year’s holiday crafting and while I don’t recall what colors I used, I took inspiration from them for the palette on this card- keeping the background softer to let them stand out.
I went to my old faithful, Distress Inks to do some color blending over the card- a subtle mix of Stormy Sky, Salvaged Patina & Chipped Sapphire. Once it was blended, I spritzed with some water and wiped off the card to really make those glossy bits pop!
I finished everything off with a few sequins and mounted it on a light blue card base.
Hope it gets you thinking about the Christmas creations you might start making this month… and the shopping you’ll do during our upcoming Christmas in July event, celebrating with 12 full days of inspiration and savings!
See you soon!
