Joy is in the Air

Joy Is In The Air Graphic

A really fun new set Flourishes has today! Joy is in the air contains a snowglobe image with three different scenes you can place inside. This is fun!

I stamped my image on watercolor paper and painted it with various reinkers. Then I used a Marvy Liquid Applique pen to make snowflakes falling on the scene. I then covered the glove with Crystal Effects-two coats so that I could cover the snowflakes and make it thicker in the center so that it would be round like the globe. The paper is from the Authentique paper pad called Wonder. I used a Martha Stewart border die on the red panel and the heart corner is from the Fanciful Holiday die set from Spellbinders. Some twine, natural linen ribbon, and a row of buttons and done.

Here you can get a better look at the snowflakes and Crystal Effects. It took a long time to dry, but it looks really pretty!
