Purple Snowflakes...

Happy Wednesday,

Another sample made with the new Media Plate Frames and a sneak peak of the poinsettias made with the waste form the frame.

I made this piece on my Hochanda shows and as usual brought it home along with the waste piece I cleaned the brayer on which I thought would make perfect flowers that would match the colours perfectly!

I used the new Snowflakes stamp set along with the Oval frame media plate and Izink Pigment inks in Violet, Navy Blue and Sky blue.

The centre panel is made using the Festive Silhouettes stamps in black and another piece of scrap for the backing.

I cut the layers using the matching Media Plate dies in blue and gold which really makes the frames shine.

  20. This is such a beautiful, peaceful card. I just love it. I love that you save and "up-cycle" your bits of leftover papers. Now it will not go to waste but reside on a beautiful card instead of a landfill.
