For the alpha "K" challenge. I used Gina K kraft for the base and snowflakes and Recollections kraft for the frame. (I doubled the frame and the snowflakes.) After I diecut the frame I placed it on scrap paper and splattered on the white by just dipping my paintbrush in the jar and tapping the brush all around the frame.
I had a negative diecut of the the dancing deer, so decided to use Gina K kraft ink to sponge my deer. (That was the first thing I did to start making the card,) using my Yoseng makeup brushes which are just like the life changing Picket Fence brushes but less expensive from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...TMY084KW&psc=1
After I adhered the snowflakes with glue dots and glue, I painted a bit more white on them. tfl!

Oh my, what a gorgeous card for the letter K Alphabet challenge Shirl. I love this Kraft card base and beautifully embossed frame. All the snowflakes and white "snow" remind me of Rudolph taking off with Santa into the Christmas Eve blizzard to deliver presents to all those good little boys and girls. There is a vintage charm I just adore about this card. ~Karen.

This is fabulous, Shirl! I love all the white splattering you did, perfect! I also like your sponged reindeer and 3D bow, very fun. I think my DD1 has those brushes, only she uses them for make-up. LOL I like the tip though, of using them for sponging. That embossing on your frame is perfect too.
