Snowy Wishes

Hello!

Today, I am playing with a new background stamp I got from Hero Arts and I wanted to create a fun, wintery looking card using it for the holidays. 
I began by placing the stamp in my Misti, inked it with Versamark ink, stamped onto my heavy weight cardstock then added white embossing powder and heat set.
Using some Cracked Pistachio and Peeled Paint Distress inks, I watercolored in the background.
I wanted to add further interest to the stamped image so I used my Penny Black Script stamp, inked it in some Peeled Paint and stamped over the snowflake background.
 To add even more of a snowy effect, I edged my card with Versamark and white heat embossed the edges and splattered white acrylic paint too.
  I stamped the sentiment from MFT and cut the panel for the front.  
The finishing touch was to die-cut a snowflake from SSS, add the green gems and back it all with green sparkle paper.
