Snowy Days

Today’s Mixed Media Challenge (MIX209) asks us to Make it Frosty. While it may look a little simple, believe me, there’s a lot going on here.
First I brayered a really large acrylic block  using a blues rainbow pad, spritzed the block w/ water, then smushed it around w/ a water brush & stamped it onto the card stock. Sort of a variation on Wrinkle Free Distress. After it dried a little, I spritzed it w/ a spray I made w/ thinned white acrylic paint. Then the trees &  snowflakes were white embossed on top. Well…my Wrinkle Free Distress was wrinkle free until I heat embossed. 😉  I added a white die cut frame & half of the Snowy Days greeting on an oval. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
