let it snow, let it snow,let it snow..

Hey there bloggers,
well sorry for the rather uninteresting title ! Here is my offering today..

Sorry I struggled to photograph this one!
This card was an experiment for me and every time I look at it I am not sure whether i like it?!!!Still, I started with a blank stepper card, coloured with DI and then spritzed with my latest addiction, perfect pearls mists..they are scrummy.Then I over stamped with snowflakes form creative expressions (snowy day plate)in pearl and silver paint dabbers.
I really love the background.it is just what i had hoped for.
The front snowy panel was a torn piece of  card, spritzed with perfect pearls mist and then when dry i added some rock candy and sprinkled some chunky pearl glitter, from my mum, into it.
I stamped the trees from creative expressions stamp plate in the fab iced spruce DI.
The die cut trees are Tim's as are the snowflakes.To give the trees a texture they were cut from canvas on a roll, inked, covered in random blobs of rock candy and glitter dropped on, then when dry I dabbed snow cap paint dabber on.
The snowflakes were inked using tumbled glass and stormy skies DI, then covered in glossy accents and the pearl glitter..thanks Mum!
The sentiment is creative expressions and was inked and stamped using iced spruce, tumbled glass and stormy skies.
Finally I added rock candy and sprinkled in pearl glitter, again, to look like ice. the 3-d snowflakes are meant to look like they are falling form the sky and in my head they did!!!
