Inky snowflakes

Hello lovely crafters. 
I've finally made a card I'm happy with and, as is the way of things, it was really quick so the long time I spent on my previous idea was completely wasted!
I made this for the new 52CCT colour challenge. The colours are a bit unusual but I'm sure we will see some inventive cards from our loyal followers. 

Here is my card:

 I used one of my favourite techniques of stamping and embossing, inking then ironing off the embossing between scrap paper. Don't forget the paper or you'll get a sticky iron. 
I stamped the snowflakes and then wet the paper and sprinkled red, orange and yellow brushos over the different areas. I used a brush to spread them a little. Then walk away and allow to dry. 

I hope you like it too and are tempted to join in the challenge. 

Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x

  1. An unusual colour scheme for Christmas but a super result - nice technique

  2. Super technique! I never do this, mainly because I have no idea where my iron is! Love the brushos, they do rescue us sometimes don't they?
