Snowflake Resist

Red and white have such an visual impact together.  Today at Splitcoast, the challenge is to choose a resist technique to use on our card.  My card features a basic resist by first stamping my snowflakes using Versamark and embossing with white.  I then rubbed Distress inks in various shades of red onto my piece.  Then using a dry cloth, I rubbed over the piece to remove excess ink and reveal the snowflakes underneath.  Finally, I speckled some white acrylic paint over the top and mounted my piece onto an embossed bkg.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a peek.  

Supplies:  stamps; Old Island Stamp/ Distress inks/ eb folder/ bl Memento/ embossing powder/ acrylic paint

Pretty resist card, Karen! Like the simple design and the red bkgrd that "shows off" your snowflakes and flecks. :)
