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
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.
