Snowy Christmas

The 3rd Day of Frosted Designs 12 Days of Christmas is to use 3 mists/inks/paints.  I have used 3 Distress Markers as ink painted onto a stamp.  I love the effect and it makes the scene on the stamp appear more snowy than using an ink pad.

Supplies:  pink square card blank, white and pink cardstock, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Markers (Pine Needles, Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick), MC sticker, foam tape.

Tools:  Big Shot, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Spellbinders Ribbon Buckles and Mega Ovals dies, Hero Arts Two Birds In A Tree stamp.
