The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "for the love of sparkle". I've been getting quite into the Christmas spirit with this one - all those cosy thoughts of snuggling up to a log fire and watching the snow sparkle in the light outside. Of course, I don't actually have a log fire and I'm much more likely to be digging my car out of the snow than sitting back and watching it sparkle, but that's hardly the point! It's so magical to be out in a thick snow fall, watching the flakes slowly fall to the ground where they twinkle and sparkle - roll on December!
The main snowflake was stamped with black archival ink and then filled with a white paint pen. I used the same technique on the "merry" panel, using the white pen and a grey Promarker to highlight the lettering. Both panels were mounted on white card that had been lightly inked in blue and the card was assembled.
Oh, and "Sparkle the dark up"? A line from my favourite Christmas song, "December will be magic again" by Kate Bush!
Supplies I used included:
