Hi everyone, it's Julie here hosting the blog today. The challenge this week is - All About Texture so I decided to join in using my Cheery Lynn Texture Plate.
I used the brick plate and ran some co-ordinations paper through my die cutting machine and then sanded it back to reveal the coloured core. Next I die cut this piece of paper and sprayed some glue onto it and added extra fine glitter for a frosty feel.
My tree I layered up and sprayed with some gold mica spray and dried with my heat gun. This helps to curl the paper and gives it a firmer feel. I added Flower-soft snow, glitter, red stickles, my little birds and snowflakes all to give a winter feel. The Tree comes with some wonderful decorations dies also and you can see it decorated here on one of my previous cards.
My window I wanted a frosty feel to, so I added some icicles....I adore this die. They we're die cut in white card with a little distress added to the points of them, I then sprayed glue and added glitter too them and placed onto my window frame with a little snow. I also made some curtains for behind my window using my Cuties strip die.
My wording I layered up twice for a shadow effect. I wish you could see all the sparkle on this card but the camera has unfortunately only picked up a bit of it.
