From this picture you can see how the snowflake paint adds fabulous highlights over all the raised areas, particularly on the JOY and my reindeer. My reindeer is cut using the reindeer flight die, cut from mountboard, adding six layers to give fabulous dimension and then painting with Fresco Finish Paint. For further interest I stamped text onto the reindeer using the background stamp from Wendy Vecchi's Art Of Making It Merry stamp set using manganese blue archival ink. 25 has been added to the top coloured with broken china Distress Ink, adding manganese blue to the edges. I also added baubles attached with jump rings hanging from a screw eye.
For more great ideas please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects. Remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp. I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated. Enjoy your week. Tracy x x
