Snow Much Fun Glitter

I love working with this stamp set "Snow Much Fun".  So much you can do with it.  I was inspired by the stamping 411 sketch challenge and the SULateNightStampers challenge, use glitter or rhinestones, for this week.  Love it when you can get two challenges in one card!  I always love the stamping 411 sketches as I can usually find the perfect set for each sketch.

For this card I actually used the iridescent ice embossing powder for the tree and the snow ball, but for the snowflake, I used the dazzling diamonds glitter and the glue pen to adhere it.  I also used the white gel pen to add the white on the tree after I colored it with the old olive marker.  To add even more glitter, I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed with an alcohol solution and sprayed the paper prior to running it through the big shot using the snow burst embossing folder.  It just seems to have a more defined image when you do it that way.  So I would say I have shimmer everywhere.  And, I did add that one little rhinestone into the center of the snow flake just to give a little more bling.

Here is a close up of the bling!
