inky impressions challenge - snow

hello everyone it's time for another inky impressions challenge, this weeks theme is - winter or snow! i really had a blast with this theme, here it is

for this card i printed my digital stamp Marisa's Sleigh Ride onto watercolor paper, ironed it to set my printers ink, and used my tim holtz markers to paint Marisa.   for the large snowflake that i mounted Marisa on is just cut out of craft paper and painted with acrylic paints, then mounted onto a piece of basic grey white and cream lace patterned paper and cut out to make the snowflake stand out.  i added some i am roses flowers in to corner, silver swirls from hobby lobby, snowflake lace from the tin tiara on etsy, and a "warm wishes" sentiment to the corner.

 here's a close up of Marisa's Sleigh Ride and you can really see the details of the hand painted snowflake background i sponged where she would be riding so she would look out of place and flicked with sliver paint after i finished with all it's painting for just a little christmas sparkle! :)

i hope you like this project and check out inky impressions!
