OLW 121 - Snowy Day (Part 2)!



 This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by Susan. It's an inspiration challenge called "Snowy Day" based on December 30's posting on a site called Cake Wrecks. This posting has about 6 photos, and I couldn't possibly choose only one!

I chose this photo for inspiration -


I used an old Stampin' Up! snowflake, embossed in blue pearl and then masked and sponged the 'ribbons' on, using Tumbled Glass ink before stamping the unknown clear sentiment in Broken China.

We're off to visit my parents for a couple of days (hoping to see Les Mis with an old friend!) so it may be a while before my next post. Enjoy your weekend!

Gorgeous! You did an amazing job of masking. I would have guessed you laid down your ribbon first and then embossed the snowflake. Again, gorgeous!!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend and that you get to see Les Mis!

Beautiful! I would have guessed the exact same technique as Darnell did! Now that I look at the card, I see that the embossed snowflake would resist the ink - once again, so clever and so pretty!

Enjoy your visit with your parents :)
