My girl catching snowflakes was perfect for this challenge.

I started the canvas with some spray mists and paper towels.  Dabbing until I had the right background I wanted.  I punched snowflakes from different colored designer paper and put matching glitter glue down the middle of them.  Once dry I used mod podge to adhere them to the canvas.  As a final touch I added gem stones for more sparkle & shine.

 My digi image was colored with pencils.  I embossed the snowflakes with irridescent ice (although the silver glitter glue might have worked as well)  I backed her on navy paper and mod podged her down. 

She turned our awesome.  I did finish the sides so she's ready to hang!

Be sure and check out my fellow designers as they have done an amazing job this week from the inspiration photo.  You can find them and the rules for entering @ http://stamp-n-doodle.blogspot.com/

Have a blessed day!

The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
