Snow Dust

I have a Christmas card to share today...featuring a Penny Black stamp called 'Snow Dust'. I stamped the image using Versamark Ink on to a panel of watercolour paper 'smooshed' with Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon & Chipped Sapphire), then heat embossed it using 'Sparkling Snow' embossing powder by WOW...you can just about make make out some sparkle on the photo, but the effect is really pretty in real life. I blended a little more 'Chipped Sapphire' ink around the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I added a sentiment (stamped and embossed using the same powder) from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous, then matted it on to some Chipped Sapphire cardstock.
