Puffy Snow, Shrinking Lace!

I love using Liquid Applique for snow. If the scene has snow; I can not resist. One thing I learned from this card that I will share with you..... I did the Liquid Applique last thing, my oval panel was already attached with the lace. Don't know why I saved it for last, but I did. I learned that the heat gun and lace do not like each other. Look at the lace in the bottom right corner.... looks a little lean doesn't it? Before I knew it it was was shriveling and shrinking up right before my eyes under the blast of the heat gun!!! LOL! So word to the wise -- the heat gun and lace is a no-no!!!

  4. Very pretty! Glad it didn't catch on fire! Do you air brush first or do it after you stamp?

  6. WOW! This is stunning! The martha punch is the perfect accent. Love your color job and airbrushing of the scene. Lace is the perfect border, MLN

  8. Oh, wow, this is really cool. Love the lace, it gives it such a light and airy feel. That is a great stamp, makes me think of Whoville and Cindy Lou Who. Excellent layout and embellishments, Jenny.
