Smooch + Crackle Accents = Icy Goodness!
This card was a total blast to make!!!! I've been trying to figure out a way to get the shimmery look of an icy pond.....with three easy steps, I "got 'er done!!" Please see the Product Review for Ranger Crackle Accents HERE on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog for the whole enchilada! I started with watercolor paper, sponged night of navy ink, painted half of it with Moonlight Smooch, then coated the "Smooched" area with Crackle Accents. I also painted the trees and ground with Smooch for some extra shimmer and dotted it to make the snow as well. The designer paper I chose is Basic Grey "Marrakech" and the pearls are Basic Grey Opaline Pearls, which come in many gorgeous colors! This scene and sentiment are from the October ODBD release called "With Deepest Sympathy". Once again I'm going to mention how versatile the stamp sets are from Our Daily Bread Designs....I have made several non-sympathy cards from the new sympathy sets this month. Kelley does such a fabulous job at choreographing each set!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!! Stay tuned next week for some November sneak peeks!!!!
