Vintage Snowflakes

Hello, all! I am here with another preview for The Craft's Meow's November Release. We are showcasing Vintage Snowflakes and Vintage Ornament illustrated by Nina Brackett. I am sharing a card made using the beautiful Vintage Snowflakes set.


If you know Nina, you know she is an expert at creating elegant images and this set is so very beautiful. I love the intricate patterns on the snowflakes and look at the flourishes on the font she used! YUM! =)


I used the paint resist technique for my card once again. The snowflakes and sentiment are stamped with Ranger's Pearl Acrylic Paint Dabber on a piece of watercolor paper. The piece is then heavily linked with Tumbled Glass distress ink. I used a damp paper towel to wipe off the excess ink on the images after inking.

That's all from me. Please check out what the other design team members came up with using Nina's gorgeous designs here. Don't forget to leave a comment at the preview post at The Craft's Meow Store Blog for a chance to win these two stamp sets. All new stamps will be available on November 1st at The Craft's Meow.





Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
