Hoping for Spring Snowglobe Card




Here is my version of a snow globe card. I got the basic layout from my downline and worked my own style into it.  The bird was stamped with stazon on white cardstock, then coloured with blender pens and ink.  After I finished colouring it, I covered the entire image with versamark using my versamark pen and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged my background over the bird. The clear embossing resists the ink and the colour of the bird can stay true. 

Supplies:
  • Little Leaves sizzix die
  • Leaves are cut from SU Designer paper in old olive and sponged with old olive ink
  • little bird is only available for demonstrators to give as gifts
  • Bird: black stazon, blender pens, Pacific Point ink, Apricot Appeal ink
  • Sponging: Soft Suede, Old Olive, Sage Shadow
  • white stazon
  • SU Medium Window sheet
  • Snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes set
  • Soft Suede ribbon
  • black mini clip
  • Rich Razzleberry CS
  • Soft Suede CS
  • Whisper White CS
  • Versamark ink
  • heat gun
  • Clear embossing powder (for bird)
  • Black embossing powder (for sentiment)
  • sentiment from Heard from the Heart stamp set.

Oh! I am so pleased you put this on here. I do hope, though, that you'll actually do a workshop for a similar one because I'd like to be guided through the process.

This card is the most stunning I have ever seen. Thank you for going through the process to make your vision happen and for sharing it with us. Smile.
