Cold as Ice Tando Challenge

It's challenge time again at Tando! Here's my make for the Tando Cold as Ice Challenge. I used the fantastic Tando Snowflakes as the main feature of my frosty festive wreath. 

Here's how I made it:

1 Cover a cardboard ring with burlap - I left the edges frayed for texure.
2 Paint the snowflakes with gesso then have a layer of modelling paste added - I applied the paste in a pouncing motion with a sponge to create a bumpy texture all over. I added a light sprinkle of Rock Candy Glitter to the still-wet paste.

3 I highlighted parts of the texture with Treasure Gold in Pewter before adding some random spots of glue and a touch of Pumice Stone Distress Glitter.

Use a strong glue to attach the snowflakes and the NOEL (Tim Holtz) in place to complete. Before adding the snowflakes I first created a hanging loop with florists' wire.

I used the following fabby Tando products for this make:

As this make is literally covered in glitter I am also entering it for Country View Crafts Sparkle Challenge this month. It's rare I make something quite so bling!
