Simon Says Stamp Dainty Snowflake

If you saw my 'You Have My Heart' card, that I posted a few days ago, then you will recognise this background. 
While I was playing with Alcohol Inks and Deco Foil I made 2 backgrounds and thought it would be lovely for a Christmas card. 


I used a mixture of Tim Holtz Alcohol InksCopic Marker Refills and while parts of the inks were still wet I rubbed the Deco Foil over the top using a Teflon Bone Folder. I used the same foil to line the inside of the snowflake and love the distressed look it has!

This side view shows the colours more accurately.


Mopsy decided to come and help with my photography ;-)


I am making a set of similar style layout cards to give to my Mum, this is one I made earlier ;-)

Challenges:
The Holly and the Ivy.  Anything Christmas 
Sisterhood Of Crafters.  Make Your Own Background
UnstampaBelles.  Anything Goes (no stamping)
