Girlie Grunge Christmas Card for Donna Salazar

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season. Today I'm sharing this girlie grunge Christmas card I created for a special friend featuring amazing Donna Salazar products.

Tips and Techniques
I used Donna's Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms dies to create these sweet little roses. A tutorial for my Bitty Blossoms can be found HERE.

The flowers are dry brushed with white gesso then the background and flowers splattered with white drawing ink. 

The layer edges are grunged up with Donna's Zutter Distrezz-it-All.

I printed out the sentiment using a typewriter font found on the internet. To help it stand out, I rubbed the edges with Donna's Clearsnap Pewter Mix'd Media Inx.

To glam up this rustic corrugated snowflake, I dry brushed with white gesso, then dabbed with sparkle effects paste. To add more sparkle I sprinkled the wet paste with Donna's Sugar Shimmer Twinkle Dust Glitter.

The card edge is rubbed with Leather Mix'd Media Inx.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you've been inspired to pull out your Donna Salazar supplies to create holiday projects of your own.
