Snow and Sparkle

The Lavinia Stamps challenge this month is 'Snow and Sparkle', so I thought I'd try to creating a snowy background for the Lavinia 'Star Gazing' stamp.
After a couple of false attempts at using a mask with the ink to create the snow drifts, I finally worked out the best way to do it.  I made a mask by cutting a piece of acetate, as I find it easier to use than paper.  Little white pearls were added to the scene for the falling snow.  I used two Spellbinders Arched Window dies to make the window frame.  Star Dust Stickles were added to the centre of all the snow flakes on the patterned paper to give them a bit of sparkle, before finishing off with punched silver holographic snowflakes.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  4. This is a very cute Lavinia stamp and the arch shaped frame works beautifully to give a view out to the two cute little figures which are grounded perfectly by the way you have shaded to make the snow drifts. I love the pearls for falling snow and the added holographic snowflakes too. x
