I was also inspired by Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities - Be Inspired challenge. On her November 3 inspiration, Jennifer used ink blending on her layout, and I've used ink blending to create a sky.
The image is called Polar Peace and is this month's progressive challenge image at Deedee's Digis. Since I participated in Deedee's challenge last month, I received this month's digi for free! I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut.
I began by die-cutting a tag using MFT Stitched Traditional Tag Stax and then created a snowy sky with Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil, Versamark, and white embossing powder. I inked the tag with Milled Lavender, Wilted Violet, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks (thank you, Becca at Damsel of Distressed, for my new Wilted Violet!). I adhered the image to the bottom of the card and inked the edges of the water with Broken China Distress Ink. I heat-embossed a sentiment from Poppystamps You Melt my Heart in white on a black scrap and hand-cut a fishtail on each end. I added a die-cut snowflake (Impression Obsession). I used a hole-punch at the top of the tag and tied seam-binding ribbon (thank you, Karen at Little Scrap Pieces!) and baker's twine (American Crafts).
