Joy


Yeah it is Thursday and we are almost rolling into the weekend. :)  I have to say I think this is my first holiday card for this  year.  I have made some tags but not a card yet. 

I created a whole piece of cardstock using the Darkroom Door Eclectic Snowflake stamp.  I painted it with white acrylic paint and stamped it on the white cardstock. I repeated the process until I had the whole paper covered.  I let that dry. 

I pulled out a mix of Ranger Distress Sprays and started with Iced Spruce.  I didn't like the color so I kept adding in sprays until I got a lovely dark gray background.  After that dried I splattered with the white, blue and silver sprays.  You can't see it in the photo but the silver is gorgeous dew drops in the light.

After that I cut it into multiple pieces to use on cards and this is the first one cut at an angle, distressed around the edges and accented with the Darkroom Door Wordstrips - Yuletide.

Now I have a few more pieces of this lovely background to play with.  Have a wonderful Thursday!

  1. How effective the masterboard piece is and I do love the little splatters. The fine cord with the dsinty snowflake charms finishes this lovely card to perfection.
