Snowed In

         No I didn't get snowed in, but captured this photo of my parents neighborhood at the time, in Truckee,  CA after a snow storm.

     I was so inspired by Lindy's Stamp Gang January Challenge, that I even printed out the car from the mood board to include on my page! 

          The car sits on some snow made from white gesso and Lindy's Purely White Embossing Powder, embedded with some sticks I gathered outside. Next to it, is a border made with Prima Marketing's Heavy White Gesso applied to the Tim Holtz Holiday Knit Stencil. Once dry, I embossed it with LSG Hyacinth Blue Jade EP.

     My design inspiration came from the beautiful January #144 Sketch found @ Sketch N Scrap


          After applying white gesso to a diamond stencil and letting it dry, I sprinkled some LSG Flat Magical (Danny Zuko's Denim) with an old toothbrush, and sprayed it with water. While it was still wet I spritzed the edges with Starburst Spray (Afternoon Delight Denim).  The title was made from black stickers covered with some Prima rust pastes, and embossed along the top with LSG Purely White Embossing Powder. 

      This was my first time using Prima's Rust Pastes, and I absolutely LOVED working with them!  I have to admit, I was a little scared seeing them on my stipple brush and gear stencil, thinking it wouldn't come off, or be really hard to remove, but it easily washed off with warm water. I started with Brown Rust Effect Paste, then Red Rust, finished with a mix of Blue and Mint Green Patina Effect Paste. Before using the stencil though, I spritzed behind it with LSG Starburst Spray ( Fuzzy Navel Peach). Then I embossed every snowflake once from the Bo Bunny Snowflakes Stamp Set with LSG Hyacinth Blue Jade, Byzantine Bronze, and Queen Sheba's Silver Embossing Powders. I finished it off with some buttons and machine-stitching around the edges. 

     Thanks for stopping by!
