Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday - Another Inspiration Post

Hello and happy Wednesday. When I recently placed and order for some Distress Oxides, a few other things  ended up in my cart, and I made some time yesterday to get them out :-)

My card today fits my theme for Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday challenge, so I am sharing it as another inspiration. Still plenty of time to join in for a chance to be entered into the prize drawing. If you are here to link up your creation, simply scroll down to the end of this post for the linky tool.

As a reminder, this month the theme is

Snowflakes, Snowmen or a Winter Wonderland.

Penny Black Holly Jolly Critters // Penny Black Neighbourhood Die // Penny Black Season's Gifts // Winsor & Newton Masking Fluid // Distress Markers // Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch //  Versafine Onyx Ink // Wink of Stella Clear Brush

I splattered some Masking Fluid onto Neenah linen textured card stock using an old paint brush and let it dry competely. During this time I stamped one of the critters from the Penny Black stamp Holly Jolly Critters onto Bristol vellum paper, heat embossed and colored with Distress markers. The image has been fussy cut with Cutterbee scissors. After I made sure the masking fluid was completely dry, I inked up the card stock using Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide (where has this shade of blue been my whole life!!!???)  Next I rubbed off the masking fluid to reveal the "snowy" background. The  Neighbourhood die cut was lightly colored with Distress markers and I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter brush to add a little sparkle. Sentiment from the Penny Black set Season's Gifts, heat embossed using  Versafine Onyx Ink and clear embossing powder. The card front was framed onto some retired blue SU card stock then mounted onto a Neenah white card base.
