Snow Wizard!

Greetings! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and are about to shop your little hearts out in the rush towards the holidays! Remember that Saturday is Small Business Saturday and that Monday is Cyber Monday.

***End of Public Service Announcement***

Here's a nice wintry card for you.


My card features Snow Wizard (VB-075-C) from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. He was stamped using Memento ink and colored with a variety of Copic markers, which are listed on my blog. His snowy parts were painted with Ice Silks Acrylic Glaze.

When the paint dried, he was ready for his close-up.

However, he really does sparkle. This photo blew out the shading, but really shows the sparkle and glitter from the Silks Glaze. It's dead easy to use and dries really quickly, which is super-fantastic for an impatient soul like me.

The drying time really didn't matter this time since I was busy with all sorts of Thanksgiving prep. When I went back to my craftroom, I stamped and cut a mask from Judikins Eclipse Tape, placed it over the Snow Wizard, and used Nestabilities dies (Labels 14) to die cut him and the patterned paper from the Jovial 6x6 pad by Basic Grey.

Pearlescent Pearl Shimmer Chalk was sponged over a stencil for the cloudy sky. I removed the mask and added some Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Liner to create a nice icy, snowy ground for him.

I layered some very old Basic Grey papers from the Figgy Pudding 6x6 pad and added a shimmery sticker border between the layers. The sentiment, Magical Greetings (WS-064-B) was stamped using Onyx Black VersaFine ink, which I prefer when stamping something highly detailed that won't be colored with Copics. I highlighted the sentiment with glitter pens to add some sparkle..

Thanks for visiting today

In France, we'd say that your card is wonderfully "bling-bling" (yes, it is a compliment :)
