Winter snow


The Challenges are as follows:
Sketch Saturday #395
Just Us Girls #326: White, Lt. Blue,& Dk Blue.
AAA Cards #56 Winter Wonderland
CHNC #264: Anything goes Christmas

I used Versamark and chalk to color in this Stampin Up image.
I used the fixative to seal the chalk then sprayed a frost shimmer spray to make it sparkle.  I couldn't get a good photo but the effect is very pretty.  The navy background paper is from a recycled Christmas card back, and so is the silver accent strip.  The snowflake is a piece of aluminum that has been punched and embossed.  I deviated from the sketch, but I'm happy with the result.
