Teddybo's Top Tips & Challenge - SNOW !!


It's me again with another crafty creation. I had so much fun doing this got to play with spray paint and snowtex !! The tutorial was fantastic !! you will be sick of seeing these effects until January lol. I used Teddybea_123 just the most gorgeous festive image and perfect for this challenge.

I used aqua my favourite colour .

Wow how cool is this snow effect and the shabby chic effect !! I have added liquid pearls to the swirls and made another handmade flower from cheesecloth this time I added crackle paint to the edges too !

Here is a close up of the  spray paint , crackle paint and the snowtex on the edges and on the snowflake die . My hubby was what's with the spray paint and I showed him the papers before and after !! Still don't think he gets it lol . He stamped me again too I have broken china distress ink square on my butt lol !!

I also used all the effects on the inside too . I would like to enter this into the
