Some glimmering snowflakes with a background of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks for you today. Also included is a lovely sentiment from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store along with one of their new Fishtail Sentiment Banner dies.
I began with some Ranger Watercolor paper; using my Ranger Craft Mat and Ranger Mini Blending Tools, I inked up the watercolor paper with Tim Holtz Distress ink. I covered most of the panel with Faded Jeans, and just a smaller portion of Salty Ocean to act as a highlight for the future sentiment.
A Tim Holtz Layering "Crossed" Stencil was placed over the ink, and a baby wipe was used to lift some of the distress ink off of the panel. I also sprayed the panel with water to lift ink and distress the panel even more. A bit of the Faded Jean ink was spattered onto the background to add even more interest.

I die cut three Spellbinder's "Create a Flake Six" snowflakes out of white cardstock, then covered them with Stampendous Ultra Fine Translucent glitter using Tombow Aqua glue. I like the Aqua glue as it dries clear and does not yellow with glitter.
After the snowflakes were glued to the background, I stamped my sentiment from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's "O Christmas Tree" stamp set, using Versafine Smokey Gray ink. I die cut the sentiment with Stamp Simply's Fishtail Sentiment Banner die, and added a bit more glitter to the words with a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen. The sentiment was then attached over the lighter ink colored portion of the background with Thermoweb 3D Foam pieces.
