Sponged Snowflakes

Hi and welcome to Merry Monday challenge day!  This week, our hostess is Deanne and her challenge is to use a stencil.  What a cool challenge - I love my stencils!

 
 
For my card, I used a Memory Box stencil and some distress inks:


I first sponged Tumbled Glass over the whole stencil and card front, then went around the sides with Peacock Feathers to create a bit of dimension.  Then I flicked some water over it to add more interest. 

The sentiment is white embossed and I finished off the card with a few sequins.



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's fabulous cards.

Products used:

Stamps:  Peace on Earth (SSS)
Ink:  Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers (Distress), Versamark
Cardstock:  White
Accessories:  Memory Box stencil, white EP, sequins

Cheers
Karren
