Cool Snowflakes

This arch is done as my inspiration for the Gothic Arch Challenge whose theme for this is a Seasonally apt  'Snowflakes'.  Not that we have not had enough of snow and flakes over the past fortnight !!

The background is made from a piece of white card covered in pale blue printed paper with snowflakes which I have altered with Dstress inks in fired brick and tumbled glass applied over a stencil made from a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and dark pink card.  Once the punched stencil had been used it was cut up ready for application as an embellishment.

A strip of snowflake printed card was applied at the base leaving a 1/4 inch border and the edges were coloured with the same Distress inks.

A snowflake stamp was used to stamp a few random images with archival black ink.  The clear sentiment stamp was inked in Versamark and heat embossed with detail gold embossing powder.  The whole arch was edged with gold Krylon pen before adding the snowflakes and a ready made layered snowflake, finishing with diamond and  icicle Stickles glitter glue for a bit of sparkle.
