Avery Elle - Frosty Friends!

Happy Friday crafty friends! Weekend of work meetings ahead but I still get excited when it's Friday!  My project share today is another one from my wonderful World Card Making Day - Long Weekend that I so enjoyed!


It features the fantastic Avery Elle Frosty Friends set, I love the vintage feel of this set!  I started with an A2 size piece of Bristol paper masked off a "snow hill" to blend my sky (Kristina Werner inspired this background totally, she shared a project last week based on a sketch and I just loved it).  I used Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and a bit of Black Soot Distress Inks. As soon as I completed my blending I added some sparkling clear Ranger embossing powder over the entire sky. I repeated it twice and it's a shame you can't see well with the picture, it makes the sky look frosted and freezing! I then added some of my white Gellyroller pen to act as stars.

I stamped my images and decided to go with red and purple Copics, the sky inspired the addition of the purple. I colored my images and used the coordinating die cuts and added some more Gellyroller to the gloves and hat ribbon.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Avery Elle Snowflakes set with some new WOW purple sparkling embossing powder. Love the stuff it is so shimmery when you see it up close.

Once I placed my images on the card base, I added some grey shading to the bottom of the snowman and sign. Finished off with some Star Dust Stickles on the snow and the North Pole sign and some Pretty Pink Posh Clear droplets.

Thanks for taking the time!
