Happy Brr-thday!

Hello everyone, it’s Juhi with my very first post for 2017. I moved to the United States from Singapore last month. All my craft supplies are still in transit, which means I have to make do with minimal supplies and a really tiny desk. So the first thing I did to cheer myself up was place an order with Kat Scrappiness.

I got a set of the awesome Clarity Stencil Brushes and boy, am I in love!! I have never been good at distress ink blending, no matter how hard I try I always land up with ink splotches; but not with these brushes! These brushes make ink blending a breeze!

I created the background sky for my card by brushing on Peacock Feathers distress ink with the brush.

I love how I could get such even coverage with such ease! I then masked out the sky and inked the fallen snow in the same manner.

I also tried the Marvy Snow Marker for the first time, since I don’t have a heat gun I used a toaster with satisfactory results. Just look at that amazing dimension!

I did cover the mishap at the top right corner. I also added a paper pieced signboard on top of the one in this picture as I didn’t quite like it.

Here’s how I finished the card. I added some extra dimension by stamping and fussy cutting just the head and sticking it with double sided foam tape.

Here’s  closer look at the awesome dimension.
