Pearly Snowflakes

I missed playing in the LIM challenge last weekend as I was at the races on Saturday so I had to make sure I played along again this week!   The challenge is a sketch

I started with a new stamp from Hero Arts which I just fell in love with as soon as I saw it - beautiful hand-drawn snowflakes and I embossed it onto glossy card stock using the new pearly white embossing powder also from Hero Arts.  I inked over the embossing with 3 shades of Hero Arts inks (mint julep, cornflower and emerald) which gave a verdigris look so I decided to pair it with copper snowflakes for the before and after look!   The sentiment is from Winnie and Walter's Big Bold and Seasons and the snowflake is a Lil' Inker Designs die cut embossed with copper powder.

As the snowflake stamp is a 6x6 background, I had another triangle to play with so I made a second card, which doesn't quite fit the sketch, but it was still inspired by it.  Cutting the panel in half means you get 2 cards for the price of one!  Same sentiment just on a flag this time and a different snowflake gives two different looks.

Thanks for looking.   If you're a Hero Arts fan, then all the new Autumn and Winter range is now available in my online store Make the Day Special Stamp Store
