Snow Globe Multi Frame

Snow-Globe-3

Hello friends!  Today I have a really neat framed piece to share!  I used Our Daily Bread design's latest release, Warm Wishes for inside my frame, and colored with Copics.  I added glitter to all the trees but you can't see that!  I also added flower soft (Polar White) to the snow on the foreground, and inside the globe I added a few snow sugar crystals.  The frame itself is a multi-layered chip board frame by Globecraft Memories.  I adhered various designer papers from K&Co Christmas Cheer pad to each layer, and cut with my craft blade.  I sponged all the edges with T Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.  I embellished with several punched boughs (MS) and some pearls and pine cone stick ons (MS).  Here is the stand that comes with the frame:

 Here is how it looks in the natural sunlight.... shows the stamped image better but you can hardly see the globe! LOL!  This project's greatest challenge was the photo!

Ooops - needed to edit my comment and add some more praise for you....just love the patterns of the papers you used, they just look outstanding together as they frame that adorable snowman globe.....just the kind of keepsake one can put out each year as they bring in the holidays....so lovely Grace, you are so talented and creative, enjoy following what you do. Saw this on MIM as well. Hugs to you.

So cute, and detailed, Grace!

I saw a little luminary box you made and it was hanging from a gold-colored hook thingy. Here's the link - can you tell me what the hooky-thing is called, and where you got it?

Karen Letchworth said...

Grace: I'm so glad I stopped by - what a gorgeous creation! The reason I stopped by was because I wanted to let someone on the SSIC Design Team know that Linky is not up for the new (today's) challenge. Several people have commented saying they too cannot find Mr. Linky for this challenge, and i figured you could let the appropriate person know.
I'm so glad I stopped by your beautiful blog. Thanks for sharing this.
