Snow globe

I hope you're not getting tired seeing all of my pink Christmas cards, because I'm having a blast creating them. I'm trying to combine brand new, NBUS or neglected items from my stash with different techniques.

For this card, I used the Pretty Quick Snow globe card kit that I bought at a discount earlier this year.
I die cut the inside/background panel of the globe from an ink blended panel and then die cut the scene from white cardstock, adding some colour using CP inks and a Zig blender brush. I aplied liquid glue to the snowy ground and the roof of the house and sprinkled some ultra fine glitter on top. I had snipped off the snowy sky part of my die cut and used a white Sharpie to add some snow to my ink blended background instead. To colour my snow globe, I simply swiped my ink pad (worn lipstick, DOI) across my die cut for a rustic look. The sentiment is from the stamp set in the kit.

Hopefully, you can see the sparkle of the glitter in the close-up below. It's very subtle and pretty in real life.

I'm playing at:
