Caribou Snow Globe
This was done by spreading Silver Stencil paste onto Black card, then sprinkling with Silver Crystal Glitter while still wet.
I've matted the image onto a silver glitter card stock, and then again onto Black.
I was going to mount it onto a white card blank, but that just looked too stark, so instead I covered the card front with a paper featuring leaping deer & Christmas trees, which mimicked the main image.
It's from an old 8x8 pad from Dovecraft, called Christmas Blues.
I mounted the image onto the front, and that was when I realised a bigger card base than the 6x6 I'd used would have given me more room for a sentiment. You can see all the careful planning that goes into this, can't you? So I used a silver peel off Seasons Greetings,layered up exactly the same as the main image, and mounted at the bottom with foam pads.
