Hello Winter!

Hello. my dear crafty friends! My name is Irit  and this is my very first post here, also for a year I was on Wow Embossing Powders USA team, so I am not new to those gorgeous WOW! products at all.
 This month is a month of Ice and Snow  in our blog. Ice and snow for Israeli girl? We hardly see snow once in a lifetime. But as I design  only for out of Israel companies, I do have great winter products to design with and today I am going to show you  my "Hello, Winter" wall deco full of Wow! Embossing Powders stamps and powders.

The basic part of this deco is this 30*30 cm (12*12'') chipboard piece from Australian A2Z Scraplets company. It was a long way to make this board to look like it is now: each part of it was covered with Versamark embossing  ink and heat embossed with a lot of WOW powders.
I used Metallic  Silver Sparkle , Azure, Pastel Blue and Neutral Ultra Shimmer in a mix and most of them were double or triple embossed.
 Then I made this  inner stamped circle: American Crafts light blue cardstock was stamped (on the smooth  side, not over this textured one) with a lot of WOW! stamps. I used Brocade, French Music and  all three backgrounds form Fanky Border Strips set and made them in a kind of a grid , totally randomly, stamping with the same Versamark ink and then heat embossed with  Bright White embossing powder.

After stamping and heat embossing I  cut a circle and embossed it around with Azure  powder.
The Pink Paislee huge chipboard letters were distressed and then heat embossed with Neutral Ultra Shimmer powder again. Finally I added some American Crafts letters  and as those letter are not so sticky after all, I made a made a thin line over them with Glossy Accents (my tip for altered projects using so called  self adhesive letters- looks great and different).

Then I added some button snowflakes and one big grunge board one on the bottom. I decided not to add any more embellishments over the central part as I wanted the stamping be shown and not covered with other products.

Hope you like my altered piece and see you next month with more WOW! inspiration!
