Snowflakes (Technique Blog Hop)

For the Technique Blog Hop this month, we are showcasing the Spray Pen from Close To My Heart.  These can be used to mist your projects with a mix of water, reinker and/or Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint.  

If you arrived from Wendy's "My Scrapbooking Blog" blog, then follow along with the link at the bottom of this post to continue the Technique Blog Hop

Using an overlay cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge is a great way to add a background to your project.  Instead of adhering the snowflake overlay to my card, I used it as a "mask" by placing it over a piece of Sky cardstock.  A few drops of Crystal Blue reinker, rubbing alcohol, and some Pearl Paint were added to a Spray Pen and then shaken to mix well.  Spritz a few times over the card with the Spray Pen and when the overlay is removed, snowflakes with a bit of sheen create a nice background.  

To finish the card, a sentiment from the Frosted Cardmaking Workshop stamp set was added with Pacifica ink along with some of the snowflakes which were removed from the overlay before using it as a mask.  Blue Sparkles add just a bit more 'shine' to the card.
