Zoe Week 1 "Frosty Finish / Anything goes"

Good morning Lovelies! Well a Happy New Year to all my lovely followers, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and managed to keep warm and safe during the awful weather. As you all know I was in Canada visiting my darling daughter, we had the most wonderful Christmas ever, so so special. We didn't want to come home.

So here are my DT samples for Premium Craft Brands our theme is "Frosty Finish" but you can do anything you like, you don't even have to use Premium Craft Brand products, and you get a prize if you win.

 
 

 

I created my backgrounds with Pan Pastels, the top card I used some Maemeri light modelling paste through some sequin waste to create some texture, and added it along the bottom too and added micro beads and mica flakes, the deer is cut using grunge paper which I'd stamped first.

The second card once I'd coloured and sprayed with cheap hairspray I stamped snowflakes with clear embossing ink and swiped over with the silver metallic pans, i stamped the skinny trees with a dark green Archival ink, I then covered the whole of it with dries clear glue then covered with clear distress dry glitter, my embellishments are made out of a heatable, mouldable plastic which I'd covered with a frosty clear film, I die cut the deer and Holly then coloured with Archival ink, I heated the Holly leaves to give them some shape, once my glitter was dry I inked the edges with faded jeans distress ink, that's the great thing about distress glitter, you can ink over it.

I hope you like my cards, thank you for visiting, please check out the other very talented DT samples.

Hugs Zoe xxx
