This was such a fun one layer card to create! I used the sketch by Chrissy Larson for the current CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge and used an older WPlus9 die set for the WPlus9 Throwback Thursday Challenge #8. I'm also entering this into Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge where anything goes this week.
I created the background by smooshing 4 different distress inks on acrylic sheets, spritzing with water and applying the ink on Tim Holtz watercolor CS. I heat dried between each color then splattered some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine over it. I added fine glitter to the snowflakes which doesn't show up well in the photo.
DISTRESS INKS: Evergreen Bough, Pine Needles, Scattered Straw, Peacock Feathers.
DIES: Snowflake Trio die by WPlus9; Winter Words Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti; Stitched Rounded Rectangle Die-Namics by MFT.
An Oily Side Note...
Anyone in your household suffering with a sore throat? A soothing remedy is to fix a Thieves "tea" by adding 2 drops Thieves oil and 2-3 drops lemon oil to 8-12 oz. hot water. Sweeten with 1-2 tbsp. raw honey (local made is best!).
I'm also a big fan of adding 6 drops Thieves essential oil to my diffuser which acts to enhance the immune systems of everyone in the room! The diffuser has the added benefit of acting as a humidifier which keeps those mucous membranes from drying out!
