I used a free image from Shabby Cottage Studio for my snowflake greeting card and used the peeling paint technique to help frame the lady looking out of the window. I bought some chunky glitter glue that has little snowflakes in it which gives a bit of sparkle in person. I sanded the outer edges of the card and stamped it with a PSX snowflake stamp. The two bigger snowflakes are sparkly foam stickons.
Also the This Thursday, It’s All About theme is “playing with paint”, which is exactly what I did here with the peeling paint technique I used. For anyone that doesn’t know what that is, you spread a thin layer of petroleum jelly on your image, randomly, not necessarily covering the whole image. It works as a resist. Then you paint over it with a coat of paint. After it dries, you wipe gently and the paint slides off the jellied portions of the image, paint sticks on the other spots.
