Frosty Christmas

Finally used one of those techniques shown on YouTube (you know the myriad of crafty video tutorials we all watch but never get round to trying)…and it turned out better than I imagined.

I used the Christmas Rose Bouquet from WPlus9 and the dies from Concord & 9th Season of Cheer.   After colouring the image that I had stamped twice onto copic friendly cardstock all that was left to do was complete the frosting technique.

Before I committed to frosting the panel I decided to try my glitter on a smaller image just in case it covered up too much of the colouring.  

Practice image made into a card – used Hello Bluebird Littles Holidays Extra stamps, and Typed Christmas sentiment.  patterned paper from Die Cuts with a View and Penny Black Antique Frame nested dies.

Here is the image before the frostiness commenced.

The frosting technique is just double sided adhesive (I used Elizabeth Craft Tape which is very thin) adhered over the image and then glitter sprinked on top and burnished with you finger.  Shake any extra off.  

TIP: Head over to Therese Calvird’s blog at http://www.lostinpaper.com if you want to watch a video of this technique. or find her on YouTube.

Hope you try this soon.  I’ll definitely be making a few more cards using this technique.
