Painted Snowflake

Happy Thursday!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for this week's Viva la Verve! challenge.  I was in a playful mood, so I pulled out some white acrylic paint, added a little bit of water and painted it directly on the snowflake from Glad Tidings and stamped onto basic gray cardstock.  {Note:  if you're stamping with paint, be sure to have water and a scrubber handy, so you can immediately clean your stamp, otherwise the paint will dry and its no fun trying to get dried paint out of the little crevices.}  Then I just brushed a little of the whitewash mixture on the edges of the square for a snowy looking edge.

For the pear pizazz panel, I arranged about seven of the sentiments from Glad Tidings on a long acrylic block and stamped it in pear pizazz as a background, filling in open areas on the sides with the small snowflake from the set.  The white background is embossed with a holiday Cuttlebug folder I rediscovered in the great studio clean-up last weekend.  For accent, I added some green lace trim, a Making Memories pearl cluster, then tied on some bells with 1mm silver cording from Pizzazz Aplenty and accented my circle with some shiny silver pearls.

That's all for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
