Snowy Winter Day

The challenge at Joan's involves a technique used by Joan. The entire challenge is to use Selma's new technique, use a combination of colors, use a tree, and use a flourish.  The technique gives a snowy effect to the background. Complete directions are at Selma's blog here. My snow is not as good as the effect on Selma's card so I will have to practice more with the misting. But I think it is good enough for an entry for the challenge....just wish I had more snow? I used GKD Stamp "Life is Good"  for the background and foreground trees and used distress inks Tumbled Glass and Broken China. The sentiment stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Zing Silver EP is from Creative Clear Stamps. The flourish is cut with a Tim Holtz Die (belongs to my friend)  from metallic Silver CS. I edged the image layer with Pilot Marker Silver pen before adhering to a card base of Glossy White CS same as the image was stamped. I really like this card but I had a hard time photographing with the metallic elements and having my snow show up.
Other supplies: Versamark, White EP, Water Mister, Embossing Buddy
Challenges: Joan's Gardens- use Selma's snowy technique and othe elements listed above.
