Let It Snow

Here is a little project I made for DD1.  I put it on her package as a gift tag.  However, it is a square with a board backing so it could be framed as a picture or a magnet could be added to the back and placed on the fridge. The board is a bit smaller so that the snowflakes are see through. Unfortunately, the camera has the background a dull grey.

The background is packaging which I hoarded.  I assume it's from flowers or similar embellies.  The snowflakes were already punched and the blue glimmer paint was already sprayed on.  I love when half the work is already done for me!

This stamp set, Christmas with Barkley Let It Snow is from the Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC on-line store (I'm on the Rogue Crew).  I acquired it last year yet this is the first chance I've had to use it! I stamped directly onto the background.  Then I stamped again on paper and fussy cut the dog.  I stamped the hat a third time and layered it on top.  Coloring was with Copic markers. I accentuated the snowflakes with Marvy Liquid Applique; after drying a bit, I applied the heat tool to make the snow puffy.
