Sparkle Blends and Stampendous Blog Hop

Hi everybody!

Its been a little while since I've posted and I am so happy to be back for a blog hop for a collaboration with Stampendous for Doodles Paper Playground! I have two winter projects for you today: a card and a snowflake ornament.

The first project is a card featuring an adorable little snowman. We just had our first snowstorm which left about 9 inches of snow the day after I finished this card (coincidence?) so this little guy definitely knows his stuff, lol. I colored the snowman with copics inspired by Vixen Sparkle Blend and then used sequins from the blend as snowflakes around him. I mounted the white panel on an A2 top folding turquoise card.

The second project I have is a super shiny snowflake ornament. The snowflake is from Stampendous’ Windowrama Snowflake Chipboard kit. I wanted to turn this into a white sparkly snowflake so I started by using a white pigment ink all over. This gave a pretty white color but not sparkly so after it was dry I added white mica fintec watercolor on top. Then I outlined the edges with a pale blue felt tip pen and finished it off with beautiful sparkles from the Pawsome Pets Sparkle Blend and a blue/white string.

There is a great sale at White Rose Crafts, 30% Off Sparkle Blends during the Collab Hop (Fri-Sun) with Code SPLURGE30 plus a free gift with every order.
