Messy Winter Storm


Good morning! Hope you're having a lovely weekend. I'm actually taking part of the May Rudolph Day Challenge today. My intention was to take part of it every month but....I'm feeling as students  before exams here, there was the laundry and the dog grooming (even if I don't have a dog) and I don't know what in between, lol! Here I am at last and with lots of Snippets and reusing so I'm also entering Pixie's Snippets Playground.

Lot's of Stickles!
So what did I use?

The dark blue paper is from a shopping bag, the house is from a men's shirt ( the collar thingy), the inky snow is a piece I've used as a mask when inking.

A black pen to draw the windows, Distress inks in different shades, three Penny Black snow flake stamps stamped in different colours. You can see that the tiniest has the darkest colour. The larger ones are stamped onto the tiny one but with lighter colours.

White Liquitex Gesso splattered wildly and star shaped sequins. The sentiment is Joanna Sheen, stamped in Watering Can Archival ink.

Enjoy rest of the weekend and get messy with colours!

Love and hugs
Maarit

  15. Some terrific snippets & recycles! It made such a nifty & unusual card, and I love the house. Windows look so good (if I'd been hand drawing you can bet they would NOT look like this). Loved that you were even able to use bits of previously masks to incorporate into this pretty card. Well done! TFS

  25. Maarit I was just complaining of the same thing, where does the time go?
    There are not enough hours in the day to do everything!
    A beautiful wintery scene on your card, love the rustic look and the added sparkle, set against the dark blue. Just perfect.

    Hugs Erika. x
