uk stampers weekly challenge tag week 36

frostyLeavesSml

This tag (for week 36 in the ukstampers challenge) is so much nicer in real life as you can really see the twinkle.  This weeks challenge had to include:

  • a leaf as a stencil
  • paint
  • doodling

Inks:  Brilliance Platinum planet, Versacraft white, Colorbox French blue and Ice blue
Card:  white card
Stamps:  A stamp in the hand Field of sky (for the snow), Lavinia stamps Icicles
Other:  Dried pressed leaves, glitter pen, diamond glaze, white acrylic paint, white opaque pen, fibres, silver eyelet

I used the leaves as a stencil and dabbed the blue chalk inks over them then dabber a little Platinum planet over the tops.  You can just make out some veining on the leaves as these were the same ones I used for the previous tag so there was a little residual ink left on them.  The snow was stamped using the white ink and the icicles using the Platinum planet ink. I spattered some white paint over the whole tag to give an extra snowy effect.  My doodling is actually the 3 spiders webs in the foliage – using the white pen and highlighted with the glitter pen.  The icicles were highlighted using the glitter pen too and also diamond glaze.  I took the glitter pen all around the edges too.
