winter wonderland 35

Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge is all about Winter stamping. Will you stamp a snowy scene? Try a new use for a snowflake stamp? Perhaps be inspired by the colors of winter in your ink choices...
I was inspired to stamp a winter wonderland on a picture frame:
I love to alter home decor pieces and this challenge inspired me to do just that. The photo featured was taken while we were on a ski trip at Squaw Valley:
I collaged tissue wrap to the frame to create a base then from there, I applied stormy sky Distress Paint followed with randomly stamped / heat embossed Grunge Flakes:
For added interest and design, I used Texture Paste along with the Latticework stencil
A die cut crackled Stacked Snowflake was added to complete the project:

The title was die cut using a couple of the beautiful script Holiday Words:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
