'Tis the Season

 Morning.

Well we are enjoying unseasonable warm temperatures here and I am busy making snowy cards.  
So meet today's card.  Another one done for the holidays.

I began by placing my evergreen stamp by Magenta into my Misti, coloured with markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I wanted to add a snowy feel to my card so leaving the stamp inside my Misti, I took a Versamark pen and coloured on just portions of the tree branches and heat embossed with white. 
I love the effect it achieved.  
 I watercolored the background using Distress inks then white embossed the edges of my card as well.
The sentiment from PTI was stamped with black Memento ink and clear heat embossed to make it pop.
I splattered on some white acrylic paint over the whole piece as the finishing touch.
