Snowflake Mandala

Hi and welcome to my blog. I saw a neat technique on pinterest that I wanted to try, so I used this snowflake stencil to try it out. I used gold Lunar Paste through the stencil at first. After lifting off the stencil and while the paste was still wet, I sprinkled on some silver embossing powder and then heat set it. I really love the results! 

Stencil:  Snowflake Mandala - Gina K
Saying:  Sticker
Gold Lunar Paste - Simon Hurley
Silver Embossing Powder - Ranger

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are having a great Christmas Season!

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

Many thanks to our generous Sponsors for
