Faux Snow Snowflake

Happy Monday! (I'm trying to perk myself up.) :) I'm actually writing this late Sunday night and scheduling this post for the morning... so the thought of heading back to work is not too thrilling! :) But.... one thing I DO love about Mondays is our weekly CHF Chick's Challenge! This week, we're getting to play with Faux Snow by The Art Institute!

If you've never used this product, make sure to take a look at all of the designer's projects to find out more about it. Faux Snow is the new Product Spotlight for this week at CHF - so I hope you try some out for yourself! :)

I really like how this card turned out. It was soooo simple - and I finally got to break in some of my crackle paint. I love how Ranger makes so many products in coordinating colors! (I used the Broken China Distress inkpad to stamp my Writing Paper background to match my snowflake.)
I painted my snowflake with Broken China crackle paint and added the 'snow' to the top while it was still wet. It acts like glue and holds it in place nicely when it's dry. Smile I also added a rub-on to the button to give it a little punch.

And... here's a close-up of my snowflake. I wanted you to see how light and chunky this Faux Snow is. I think it looks like a decorated sugar cookie! Yum! :)
