Snow Angel

This is my friend Ashley in one of her gorgeous profile pictures.

I used all card board for this one and tried something I've never done before. I did a little mixed media on this using a mix of the card board and a piece of lace that I stained with alcohol ink in cranberry.
I used a Tim Holtz mask flourish on the underside and rather than using ink, I used black paint. I used small flowers in the bottom corners as stencils and painted around those too. Then I added glittered snowflakes to all of the flowers.

On the lace piece, which is very hard to see in pictures, I glued bows and snowflakes, all in pinks.

I used a clear glitter paint over the entire layout to give it a frosty look!

Thanks for stopping by!
