Crafty Gals Corner - Challenge #104 - Use Something New

It's time for another challenge with us at the Crafty Gals Corner

This week we are letting our creative juices flow
with Challenge #104 - Use Something New

Our generous sponsors this week are:

Prize - 2 digital images

Prize - $15 Gift Certificate

Today I have used the Season's Tweetings digital stamp from Wink Wink Ink, one of our generous sponsors this week.  I have used several new items too, from all the different snowflake cut files and film strip cut file, to the pretty holly & berries gemstones (details listed below).

My card is a 6 x 6" top fold.
I coloured the image using Copic markers.
The snowflakes, film strip and polaroid frame were cut using my Silhouette Cameo.
I coloured the snowy portion of the snowman & background of his "photo" with Clear Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush.  I also coloured each of the snowflakes, so they all have a delicate sparkle.
The snowflakes are adhered using a combination of foam dots and liquid adhesive.

I have layered lots of snowflakes of different designs and sizes to make a sparkling dimensional cluster.  It's a challenge to take a photo showing the layers and sparkle on the white-on-white.

Here is a close-up showing some of the delicate sparkle.

PS - the pretty holly & berries gemstones were part of my "something new" (Thank You Lena) and I tried something new with them too.  The green was a different shade to the holly on my snowman's hat, so I took the darkest of the markers I used to colour them in and coloured the gemstones.  As you can see, it worked a treat and I look forward to having more colour coordinated embellishements in the future, thanks to my Copic markers.
The top left cluster is the coloured one.
