CC3C9: Winter Wonderland

Hello crafters -

I’m playing along with the latest Compendium of Curiousities 3 Challenge… and it’s not a last minute project. The challenge this time is to use Sizzix Alterations Framelits (page 63 of the book). You can check out all the details of the challenge HERE and I just want to mention that Inspiration Emporium is sponsoring the challenge with a fabulous prize.


I used the Snowman Blueprint Stamp and Framelits set to build up a wintery scene. I used another cloud diecut to create the sponged sky in the background. Along the bottom I spread some Translucent Embossing Paste and then sprinkled it with Rock Candy Distress Stickles Glitter. To color the snowman I used Sakura Koi Watercolors.


Once my scene was created I changed my mind from creating a card to decorating a Burlap Panel. First I covered the panel with gel medium and added some tissue paper. Once dry I used a paintbrush to apply Dina Wakley Ruby Media Paint. I also applied some white paint to a wordband and removed the excess with a paper towel.


I finished with some Remnant Rubs and a few white sequins.
