Snowflake facets card.....

This snowflakey facets card started off as a CPS sketch. I interpreted the sketch very loosely again this week. I'm always worried if I don't stick to the sketch I may be disqualified but at the end of the day a sketch is there to inspire people to make art and everyone approaches it differently so as long as I'm having fun making something it doesn't matter what other people think.

I really wanted to try the alcohol ink and archival ink technique as Tim did on a recent tag, it just looked so pretty. And it works really well. So I am entering this into the Stamp and Show Challenge where we are showcasing a Tim technique.

And I am also entering this into the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge where the theme is Winter Wishes. Looks like we are getting my winter wish - SNOW!!!! Supposedly plenty more to come for christmas!!! YAY!!!


  1. Hi there,

    What a beautiful card! I love the facet done with your alcohol inks and the snowflake, it looks so pretty and is definitely the focal point of the card! I also love the look of the fibers you used to hang the facet. I have not found any place where I live that has carried his facets, but I have the fragments. You inspired me to give it a try! Thanks for sharing! I came to your site from the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge.

    Best wishes!
