December Beautiful World Tour

Hey everyone, it's time for the Flourishes Beautiful World Tour again and this month, I'm the host!

If you have arrived from Anne-Elise's blog, then you are in the right place.  If not, please head over to the Flourishes Blog to start from the beginning.

One lucky winner is chosen from the comments each month to WINtheir choice of Flourishes stamp set.  All you need to do is follow the hop and leave comments along the way.  You do not need to comment on every stop, however, the more you comment on, the bigger your chance of winning!

As winter quickly approaches, here in the Great White North, the ground is starting to frost over and soon, everything will be aglisten with snow and ice.  I chose to challenge the Beautiful World girls to create something that shines like the ice we will soon be seeing...

Here is what I came up with this time:
I used two Flourishes stamp sets: Joy Is In The Air and Warm Winter Wishes.  I coloured the snow globe image using Copic Markers and applied Glossy Accents overtop for a nice shiny glass-like finish!  I also applied glossy accents to the background paper to add some extra shine.  The sentiment tag was cut using the Flourishes Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die Set.  I embellished using chipboard snowflakes which I coloured (one using a white acrylic paint dabber, and the other using a blue Copic Marker) and then applied a transparent glitter using Glossy Accents as a dimensional adhesive.

I used the following Flourishes Copic Marker Sets:

Anyway, I really hope you enjoyed your stop here in Canada!
Your next stop on the tour is....

Happy Stamping!
