I get by with a little help from my friends

Som så mange andre, har jeg lett over hele verdensveven etter Martha Stewarts Scandinavian Snowflake Punch, uten hell så langt. En forumvenninne på kortscrapping.no trodde hun hadde sett den i den lokale hobbybutikken, så jeg hadde en stund et lite håp, men det viste seg å være feil. Jeg hadde egentlig ikke forventet noe annet, men litt skuffet ble jeg selvfølgelig. Helt til jeg rett før helga fikk en konvolutt i posten med en hel haug med punchede Scandinavian Snowflakes! Tusen tusen takk, Silje, du er en engel!
Så etter en helg uten Internett og et par kvelder med å døyve Pinterest-abstinensene, har jeg endelig fått tatt i bruk de første snøfnuggene, og slik ble det:

Jeg har tydeligvis tatt til meg en del lærdom fra Clean and Simple-kurset, for det ble igjen maskering og akvarell-teknikk med Distress puter. Så har jeg endelig funnet nytte i Frosted Crystals embossingpulveret jeg kjøpte ved en feiltakelse. Alle snøfnuggene har fått et tykt lag med dette, noe som ga en fin finish, men som dessverre var helt umulig (med mine begrensede fotokunnskaper) å fange på film. Jeg har også fått brukt et nytt stempel som egentlig er fra en babyplate, men så lenge det bare står gratulerer, funker det jo fint til andre anledninger også. Og jeg liiiiker det, så det blir nok mye brukt fra nå av.

Like so many others, I've searched the entire World Wide Web for the Martha Stewart Scandinavian Snowflake Punch, with no luck so far. A friend on the forum kortscrapping.no thought she had seen it in her local craft shop, so for a while I got my hopes up, but it turned out to be wrong. I really didn't expect anything else, but was a bit disappointed of course. Until right before the weekend, when I got an envelope with a whole bunch of punched out Scandinavian Snowflakes! Thank you SO much, Silje, you're an angel!
So after a weekend with no Internet connection and a few nights to calm my Pinterest-withdrawals, I finally got to use the first snowflakes and this is how it turned out.
I obviously learnt something from the Clean and Simple-lessons, because I used masking and watercolor-technique with Distress inks again. And I've finally found use for the Frosted Crystal embossing powder I bought by mistake. All the snowflakes got a heavy layer of the embossing powder, which gave a lovely finish, but unfortunately it was impossible (with my limited photo abilities) to catch on camera. I also got to use a new stamp that is actually from a baby stamp set, but as long as it only says congratulations it works great for other occasions as well. And I liiiike it so it's gonna get used a lot from now on.
