Winter Wonderland


The first challenge of the new year over on Lotstodo is 'Winter Wonderland', so here is a photo of me skiing in my winter wonderland. The background is weathered wood and broken china distress inks with snowflakes stamped in metalic acrylic pearl dabber. The edges of the tag have been distressed with the paper distresser and inked with walnut stain. The black frame was embossed with diamonds through the BigShot and cloudy blue acrylic paint was applied.

Hi Sam: Possible duplicate..
I love your art piece...gorgeous. Although I read your detail, may I add that it looks like it was treated with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel)...Excellent. Hugs, Gayle.

No, no UTEE was used Gail xxx

If you mean snowflakes Neet, they were stamped with pearl acrylic dabbers (ranger) xxx

Liz - what is a 'rat' apart from the rodent variety - didn't understand what you meant????

Gayle Page-Robak said...

Hi Sam...I want to clarify :)...I knew you had not used UTEE...I an just so impressed that you could achieve that look. It is a stunning tag. I know you do beautiful artwork and I so love the canvas I have from you...I can see it as I write this note as I have it displayed here in my office. Hugs, again...Gayle
