Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - W is for...

WOW it's cold! And this week it definitely was, with windchill temperatures reaching wayyyy down into the minus 30s Celsius. Why do I live where the air hurts my face? The Snarky Stampers want to see your Winter themed projects this fortnight. Alas, I have no snark - something about the actual cold made me warm & fuzzy while I was creating.




Supplies: fairy image from Sweet Pea Stamps; Spectrum Noir markers; sentiment from Paper Smooches; Purple Twilight Adirondack ink; Sakura Stardust and Wink of Stella glitter pens; snowflake paper from AC; Tonic distressing tool; purple rhinestones from Dollarama; Dylusions purple spray; Tattered Angels copper & Turquoise mist; classic small circle Nesties; Versamark; shabby pink & gold Frantage EP from Stampendous; Cuttlebug embossing folder



The purple circle was created using my Faux Faux Patina tutorial (here).  After colouring the fairy I used the Wink of Stella pen to colour in her wings, and then used the turquoise mist to paint the background. All the panel edges were distressed gently, and then I rolled up the corners of the fairy panel to tuck in some gems.

What does winter have you thinking? Check out the huge variety of snarky and beautiful cards from the Sistahs:




You've got until Friday, January 23rd, to join in with us! 

And don't forget to stop by and leave our guest designer NANETTE some love for her beautiful project!

xoxo,
Jessi

Oh Jessi, this is breathtakingly beautiful. I have GOT to give that faux patina a shot because it's absolutely lovely. As for the cold. Old Man Winter can suck it. That's how I feel. And it's only the first week of January! :/

I name her "Frozen Ice Fairy." She is very lovely and I am glad you are feeling warm and fuzzy. It must be because of the flannel sheets.

I'd be cold too with that low cut cleavage. Tell her to put on a parka for goodness sakes. I love your card and the colors, definitely it makes me think cold. Maybe not -30 cold, but cold.
