Fusible Snow

This design is another inspired by Barbara Gray, and involves using fusible fibres with stamped images.  The main focal image(in this case Christmas trees)stamp is placed face up on a firm surface and inked in a dark colour.  A small amount of fusible fibres are placed on top of the stamp, a piece of greaseproof or parchment paper is laid on top of them and ironed onto the stamp with a craft iron or dry iron.  The paper and fibres are removed from the stamp then the paper is removed from the fused fibres.  The image is stamped and melted into the fibres giving a beautiful effect.  The artwork is attached to the background panel which is then matted and layered onto the base card.  A couple of corner stamps finish the design.
