Hey there! I have a fun winter project to share with you today. It's our first Clear & Simple Stamps group project of the year. The first challenge was to make a card/project with the theme of Nature in Winter.
I put together a wintery card using a twig from my yard, some liquid appliqué for the snowflakes and woodgrain stamp for the "tree".
I stamped the letters for "wishes" using Alpha Clear and colored them in with a light blue copic marker, the same color as the owl's eyes.
I used a snowflake stamp from Taglines and liquid appliqué for the snowflakes, although you can't see the stamp. I used it as a guide for the liquid appliqué. If you've never used liquid appliqué, it goes on like puffy paint and then it puffs up when you heat it up with your heat gun.
I used Tombow Multi Glue to adhere the twig and it is staying on really well, much better than the glue dots I tried at first. The glue dries completely clear.
