Dazzling Snowflake for CAS Watercolour

It's time for another challenge at CAS Watercolour.

This month our challenge is

I pulled out my big Dazzling Snowflake stamp, stamped it with Whisper White Craft ink
on Mixed Media paper and heat embossed.

Then I sprinkled some Brusho crystals on it and spritzed with water.
I kept sprinkling more and spritzing until I was happy with the contrast.

A sentiment stamped and heat embossed on vellum and a few sequins finished it off.

I can't wait to see all the beautiful snowflake creations at CAS Watercolour this month.
I hope yours will be among them!

That snowflake is so gorgeous! LOVE it heat embossed with Brushos ... just perfect together. Great design with using only a partial image ... and love that vellum sentiment banner. xx

Wow..Stunning heat embossed Snowflake, Bonnie. I love how your Brushos background really made your snowflake pop and how your vellum sentiment did not cover up your snowflake. TFS my friend. Happy New Year, Nancy

Beautiful snowflake, Bonnie...looks like lace. Like it on the blue brushos with the touch of vellum. Happy New Year -- so good to get back to routine -- have had card-making withdrawal pains (smiley face) -- but lots of good family stuff and visiting.
