Snowflake Stencil Resist

 Morning. 
Trying out something different today using my favourite snowflake stencil from SSS.
I wanted to use it as a resist so here is what I did.

I began by inking up the back of the stencil with Versamark ink, placed it onto my card front and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  I then sprinkled on clear embossing powder and heat set.
I got out my Brushos, diluted with some water and used that to watercolour in my background.  The areas that were embossed resisted the paint and gave an icy feel to the background.
I splattered the background with white acrylic paint and then white heat embossed the sentiment panel and added it to my card using pop dots.
The black enamel dot was the finishing touch.



 Adding my card to these challenges:
