Gingersnap Creations: Snow, Pine and Mahogany

It's time again for the Color Challenge at Gingersnap Creations. This month the challenge colors are snow, pine and mahogany - a very Christmas-y combination don't you think? For my piece I started by stamping snowflakes with Versamark onto watercolour paper and then clear embossed them. Then I applied distress inks in pine needles, aged mahogany and some peeled paint and fired brick for color depth directly to my stamp, spritzed with a good amount of water, and stamped over my snowflakes. Just wipe the distress ink off the embossed snowflakes and you have this terrific background! There's plenty of time to join in on the challenge - it runs until Jan.23rd.
