I am here with a card to share that really took me out of my comfort zone!! It was inspired by the photograph over at the Fairytale Challenge blog.
Here is the beautiful inspiration piece they gave us: --------->
The ice-covered seed heads reminded me of some gorgeous Dollar Store silver reflective stickers I have.
To mimic the ice coating, I went to my Tonic Studios - Nuvo Crystal Drops in Sea Breeze. I squeezed out drops all over the seed head in dots and drips like you might see after an ice storm in the winter.
I grounded the scene by smoothing some snow medium over the lower part of the panel. This is the same snow medium that gave me fits before because it was not white. This time I mixed in a bit of gesso to whiten it up. Worked great.
Lastly I stamped Winter Wishes on the scene. Please do not ask me how I managed to stamp it all catty-whompus....all I can say is that it "looked" straight at the time. I didn't feel like covering the crazy angled thing with a small sentiment panel, although I might later. So for now, it is what it is!! I guess you can dock my pay if you don't like it. Ha!
Here's a close up of the seed head with the Nuvo drops:
