When gathering stash together for this card I realised I only had a punch and stamps with snowflakes. So. I studied my stamp of the children going through the snow, trying to get inspired. Then I remembered the story of the Snow Queen and the children Kai and Gerda that she tried to get under her spell. This is where my inspiration started. Isn’t it strange how things can pop into our head which we haven’t thought of in years and suddenly we are inspired.
I started off by wanting to make a big flower that looked like the Snow Queen had turned it into ice. I used my Cheery Lynn corner die. This comes in a pack with another 2 and I find them extremely useful for lots of shapes. I cut out 6 of them and placed in to a shape that now looked like a snowflake / flower. Attached together with a brad and added some glamour dust for an extra icy effect.
I then stamped my image of the children with Archival ink and shaded a few parts with a distress pen and added some frantage to give a blizzard effect, mounted onto mirri card and coordinating paper.
Hope you have enjoyed looking at my card,
I wish to enter this in Snowflakes Challenge
