Season's Greetings

Looking for the latest TCM sneak peaks?  Click here or scroll down!

Hey again!  I really wanted to play along with the latest CAS-ual Friday challenge to use Laura's sketch, but realized that I have some pretty heavy posting coming up to their deadline on Tuesday, so...you get it today!  I also combined the sketch with the Embellish color challenge and use of die cuts!  Hello, I love dies!  The color combo is so dreamy too...


Starting with a cream panel, I die cut a negative out of the side using Spellbinder's Snowflake dies, and then flicked some ink onto in with a paint brush and Perfect Pearl mist.  Taking a piece of green patterned paper, I adhered it to the backside of the panel.  I then stamped a dotted line in that purple ink and die cut more snowflakes, applied the pearlized ink and adhered them together with foam, to which I added a copic colored rhinestone.  I stamped my sentiment (from the TCM set being sneak peaked tomorrow) in brown and popped it up onto a cream card base.


Here is a look at the gorgeous inspirational colors and the sketch I used:




Thanks so much for stopping by today, lots going on around here with Trunk or Treat at my church, family visiting for dinner and catching up on stuff.  Have a great one friend!
