My bigz snowflake!

I recently bought a Sizzix Bigz snowflake...I was going to create a few hanging decorations for my Christmas tree with it (well, the Christmas stuff will be in the shops soon!)...but, by accident, it turned into a card.

I firstly sprayed it with Glimmer mist in "Black Gold", which is apparently a limited edition colour!

I also added glimmer mist in "Hydrangea" which gave my snowflake added a blue hue. There was no particular technique to just turned out this way but I really like the mottled effect of the glimmer mists.

So I added a bit of ribbon and was going to photograph it as is...when I happened to lay it down on top of another background I had created for another project. And that's how it turned into a card! I used the Penny Black stamp above to create my background.

It really was very easy to the words of the Meerkat TV advert "Simples!!"

Well, I'm off to have a good old blog hop and catch up with you all...have a great weekend!

  • Background Stamp: Penny Black "Winter Bough"
  • Sizzix Bigz snowflake, Hanging 3-D # 2
  • Glimmermists: Black Gold and Hydrangea
  • Sentiments: Unknown (I threw the wrapper away!)
  • Tim Holtz ink in Weathered Wood

Hi Sarita

What a beautiful creation.

I can see the limited edition of "Black Gold" is going to be even more limited once everyone sees your creation!

I thought I was good doing the occasional Christmas card but to be doing tree decorations .. .. .. well you are really well ahead of the game.

Have a lovely weekend.

Love Jules xx
