Winter Wishes

Hi my friends, I'm getting ready to batten down the hatches because, according to the weather forecast, a heavy snowstorm is due to arrive in my little corner of the planet on Saturday. So this might be a good time to share a Winter Wishes card I made with one of my favourite Distress colours released in 2021, Villainous Potion, Simon Says Faceted Snowflakes Embossing Folder and Etched Berry Branch Die, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Scribbly Snowflakes and Idea-ology Christmas Label Stickers.

I began by colouring a 4" x 5.1/4" panel of Distress Watercolor card with a light wash of Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink and embossed using Simon Says Faceted Snowflakes Embossing Folder. I created a second panel by smooshing Villainous Potion Distress Oxide ink on to my glass media mat, spritzed with water, laid the panel into the ink, dried, repeatedly tapped back into the ink to get that deep intensity of colour and die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Scribbly Snowflakes Thinlits.  I die-cut Simon Says Etched Berry Branch die twice from Distress Watercolor card, layered to create dimension and fixed to the panel using Distress Collage Medium. I die-cut more snowflakes from Distress Watercolor card, also layered them to create dimension, fixed them to the panel and added an Idea-ology Christmas Label Sticker.
To finish I inked around the edge of the panel with Villainous Potion, sprinkled on Stampendous White Chunky Embossing Enamel from the Snowflakes set, heat set from underneath and matted the panel on to an A2 white card blank.

Today might also be a good time to head to my local M&S and stock up on snacks for Saturday's Valentine inspired YouTube Live over at Tim and Mario's place, 9AM PT, 12 noon ET and 5PM if, like me, you're in the UK. Stay warm and cosy if the weather is chilly where you are and have fun with whatever you're making.
