With a touch of frost

So for my make for Creative Expressions today I have used the Henna collection singles stamps, which come pre cut and pre mounted x I have used these to make a mini canvas and a gift bag to put it in. So here we go :

The henna stamp I used is called Henna mosaic and is pictured below...

I started by spreading some silver pearl texture paste onto the mini canvas, making it thicker and thinner in different places, I then spritzed the stamp with water and stamped into some parts of the paste to create some texture .

 Once dry I covered the surface with iced spruce distress stain, such a yummy colour .

When this was dry I coated the sides in rock candy distress glitter and also spread some across the front...but found it hard to get it to show in the pictures :( . I then stamped the henna mosaic stamp and cut out the flower centres and coloured with iced spruce...adding wire stems and an ideaology word band .

The flowers also had some glitter added in a ring to the centre. 

For the bag I added some distress stains to my craft sheet and dabbed the bag in.

I added a flower, some wire and some seam binding dyed with same Distress Inks .

Well hope you like my frosty make , see you later for another of my takes on Linda's fab 12 tags of Christmas x

keep those fingers inky!
