Today, I wanted to quickly squeeze in a new challenge to me and also two of my favourites - fairly regular - challenges as they fit nicely together.
The first, which I might just make by the 'skin of my teeth' is the new one (to me) Inkspirational Challenge #97 and the prompt is 'Flake'
Well, it was meant to be wasn't it, considering the amount of cards I have made lately with snowflakes on them! The second challenge is for Freshly Made Sketches # 127 - A Sketch By Linda and this is her wonderful sketch.
Again, another 'meant to be' challenge as a lot of my designs lately has used this layout!
The third is Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Favourite Technique and as it also uses one of my favourite techniques at present, 'negative die cuts' and the snowflake is just that, it is another 'match made in heaven' . . . a hat trick!!
This is my card
Happy Little Stampers is also sponsoring their challenge and the lucky winner will receive a stamp set from HLS own shop!
First, I used Sparkle Medium through a Memory Box stencil on a plain, white layer, when that was dry, I mounted it straight on to a plain, white card base.
Next, I spread Sparkle Medium, straight on to a piece of white card and let it dry and then punched out the large snowflake, which I will use on another card and also punched out a smaller one and layered these up on to a piece of red foil cardstock.
I then mounted the focal piece on to the front of the base card with foam tape. Finally, I layered up a sentiment and mounted tat also with foam tape.
Thank you for taking time to visit at this very busy time of year, I truly appreciate it and want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very magical Christmas and great times in the New Year! Thank you all! Hazel xx
