She Gathered Snowflakes by Lynne Moncrieff

I had fun with three Brusho Crystal colours to create the cardbase and for staining scraps of lace and handmade papers for this Christmas card.


Brusho Crystal Colour – Turquoise, Prussian Blue, Violet
Scraps of Lace and Mulberry Paper
Coarse Salt Crystals


Apply Brusho Crystal colours to watercolour paper, continually misting with water, allowing colours to blend. Scatter coarse salt crystals and leave to dry.

Repeat this step for a second panel, excluding the salt crystals. Heat set. Stamp lady. At this stage apply the same mix of Brusho Crystals to handmade papers and lace.
Lay aside for the moment.

Returning to the first panel, repeatedly stamp Winter Wonderland stamp. Mist with water, smudging the Distress Ink. Heat set. Stamp lady. 

Now return to the second panel. Tear the stamped lady into pieces. Adhere a few over the main image (discard or save the rest for another project). Aim for a tattered appearance. Highlight areas of the lady with the white paint pen and flat back pearls.

Embellish card with pieces of the torn lace and handmade papers (prepared earlier) and torn pieces of Tissue Tape (a dab of Gel Medium will help the Tissue Tape to adhere).

All that is left for me to do is …..

Send you Seasons Wishes.

  4. What a fantastic colour combination you have created, and the stamped lady, with her collection of snowflakes and and pearls, are so beautiful.I love the idea of tearing a second stamp, to use some of the torn pieces here !!
    Thank you dear Lynne, for your fantastic artpieces, shown, which alwayes makes me inspired.
    Hugs and xxx

  5. I have not yet tried working with Brushos, but your use of them on this card is really lovely. You have created the perfect background for this Lynne Perrella lady, an image I love so much. You have created the idea of her emerging from a background that is mysterious and magical as she is. I have not visited as often I would like, as I've had rather a nasty sinus infection. Today's visit has been a real tonic! Thank you for the beauty you create Lynne. May 2015 be another truly successful and creative year for you. xxxx
