Metallic look snowflakes

Our latest challenge at 52CCT is Embossing. Everyone's favourite. You can use heat or dry embossing or both as I have. 

I made this by embossing with a snowflake folder then rubbing on ink in different colours. I can't tell you what they all were but I kept sponging on more until I was happy with the colour. There is definitely some pink, blue and purple. The final layer is silver to give the metallic look I was after.

I do like the mix of colours. 

The embossing folder came with a craft magazine and the sentiment is Inkylicious.

We've had plenty of snow and I really don't want any more. So what I mean is don't let it snow!

We hope you have time to join in. As there are 5 Saturdays in March, you have an extra week to be inspired. 

Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day. X

  4. Hi Alison

    Love the look you have achieved here .. .. just beautiful!!

    Having a lovely catch up on your blog whilst staying at Mum's. Thanks for your good wishes for her. Things seem to have turned a big corner now and all that is left now is for us to get her strong again.
