Silver snowflakes and shimmer

Hello Lovely Crafters
Welcome to another month at 52CCT. I am hosting for April and this week I have a sketch for you. 

I hope you have fun with it. You can use different shapes and orientation as long as we can see the basic sketch.

I wanted to use acrylic blocks for inking the squares but the only way this would work sizewise was on a DL card. Often the idea in my head doesn't quite work in terms of scale. 

I smooshed Teal Zeal and Grape Jelly onto a square acrylic block and then spritzed with water. You want some but not too much water or the ink drips off. Then I used that to stamp my squares. I added more colour with a brush where I thought I needed it and also added a tiny amount of Perfect Pearls for some shimmer. Embossing the snowflakes was the easy part. 

You can see a little shimmer here. 

I've used a strip on inked paper at the bottom and then a few gems for accent. 
I've lost the name of the snowflakes but the sentiment is Inkylicious. 

We hope you have time to join in the challenge, you have one week and we love to see your cards. 
I've had no time for crafting in the last few weeks and the next few don't look too good either! Perhaps I can squeeze an hour in one evening before I get withdrawal symptoms. 
Thanks for visiting, Enjoy Your Day. x


  1. I love using my stamp blocks in this way, you get some really interesting colours and patterns. Your card is so pretty and has a lovely icy feel, I'm drawn to that sentiment which looks fab on a great card x

  2. Lovely card, Alison. I love the effect of using your acrylic blocks to make the squares. xx

  3. Oh Alison, elle est féerique cette carte, ces tons de mauve et bleu scintillent, j'adore, biz
