And more snow!

I've been going snow crazy today - odd as it's actually very mild for the time of year.

For this card, I created a background using distress inks in pink and two shades of blue. I dabbed the inkpads onto scrap acetate then used a waterbrush to paint them randomly over the paper, finishing the whole thing with a spritz of water just in case it wasn't already messy enough.

Once the background was dry, I stamped the greeting (a magazine freebie) in black Memento ink  and the snowflake, an oldie from my collection (I think it was from Hero Arts) in silver, embossing it with silver powder
