White Christmas

Greetings friends and followers!  It's Sunday again and time for my weekly post for Artistic Outpost.  This week I felt like making an all white card, but then decided to add silver. to give it a more festive touch.  I started by stamping the image from Midwinter and the sentiment from Christmas Chalk on white CS with Jet Black archival ink.  I cut them out with two of the labels dies from the new Tim Holtz Thinlits Labels set.  Using the On the Edge Snow Flurries die, I cut white CS and glittered it with Clear Rock Candy distress glitter using Glossy Accents.  The tiny pearl clusters on the snowflakes are from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  Venise lace bows were added to give it a festive touch, also from my boutique.  

I cut a sheet of acrylic plastic with the new Stacked Snowflakes die.  I arranged the die cut snowflakes on a 5x5 panel of white CS and used them as a mask when I misted the panel with Brushed Pewter Distress Spray Stain....and then of course I covered it all up.  The bottom mat was edged with Brushed Pewter distress stain.  
The snowflake was one of the acrylic die cuts I sprayed with Brushed Pewter.  I love the way it looks - a unintended development!

That's it for this week's Artistic Outpost post.  I hope you'll come back and visit on Monday for week #9 of the 12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style.  

These products were used to make the above card and are available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique where Ranger/Tim Holtz and most other name brand products are always 20% below MSRP.
