Snowy Background...

Happy Tuesday,

I'm starting to slowly get back into blogging everything I am making,

 Today I am sharing a card that Lights up and has a snowy night background.  The background uses acetate and the Izink Pigment Ink Droppers and I thought I would share a technique video I have made for the background.  There is also a video showing how the card was made if you like ( or are a glutton for punishment!)

The colours I've used are slightly different form those I used on Hochanda as we had stock issues with a delivery form France ( I didn't say it got lost somewhere over the channel!) so I worked it with a change in colours which I have to admit I love it looks like the sun is coming up!

Here's the video showing how to make the background click the link to watch!

Back Soon,



  1. Morning John, lovely to see you back on the blog, yes I know you have had so much going on, I wonder that you are not burnt out yourself. Hope Sam is on the mend. Anyway back to this sample, I loved it when I saw it on Hochanda so I am really pleased you have done a video, I will watch it in a minute, I only wished that you could get the lights on a smaller string, say about 5/6 lights in total.........I bet someone knows where to get them..........

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  2. Good to have you back! Hope Sam is making progress.
    Love the background. Nice Christmassy card. I had the lattice flowers and leaves for my birthday last week - just need time to play, now I’m home again!
