At this time of year the little cluster of snowdrops on our front lawn force decide to brave the elements and put in an appearance. Each year the number seems to dwindle but we are always pleased to see them nevertheless. In previous years they have often been blanketed with snow, sometimes disappearing altogether, but this doesn’t seem to put them off or cause them to shrivel up.
I started by stamping the sentiment, by Darkroom Door, and then the snowdrops. I dusted on a little Iced Spruce distress ink around the base and then used Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire everywhere else. I dried it with a heat gun and then stamped on some splodges using white ink. This ink tends to disappear and I love the effect that it has given. (I wanted it to look a little snowy)
I dug out the tiniest of all my bee stamps and coloured the image with a yellow Promarker.The finishing touch was to add a little crystal clear glitter to give the snowdrops a frosty finish.
I hope you have lots of lovely things planned for the weekend. Me? I’ve just taken delivery of a second skip so the decluttering continues.
Thanks for buzzing by.
