Boulder Bling

Hi everyone hope you are all busy crafting away, I have done a piece today 
that I am going to enter into the challenge over on the Paper Artsy blog.

I did this panel with Jo Firth Christmas stamp's and a sweet poppy snowflake

The project that got me to make this was the gift folder with 
Sarah Neumann and electrica stamps.

I really liked the colours in this post so I thought I would do a post with 
these colour's in mind.

Thats how it started and then as with all my pieces it took on a world of its own.

As with all of my pieces I added texture and I stamped the boulders 
onto tissue paper.

I put texture paste through the sweet poppy snowflake stencil.

The holders were painted from behind in hint of mint and snowflake

I put clear embossing powder over the paint and heat set.

This gave the impression of snow balls melting i quite liked the effect.

Onto the snowflake's I painted with watered down plum and marlin.

Also turquoise was used but they were all diluted down so as not to overwhelm
the illusion of snow.

I swiped the slate over the texture paste that had been put down the sides.

I then swiped with hint of mint.

I added bits of bling from my stash.

treasure gold whitefire was used to highlight the texture.

I hope you all enjoyed my post.

Here is the link back to the original post and colour scheme that I used

Thank you all for popping by please feel free to leave a comment or two,
as this is food for my art.
