Snow and ice at Christmas time

Good afternoon everyone! I am back again, having a little break from the on going dt-call work over at the Paper Shelter to give you some new inspiration from the Crafty Card Maker's design team. Still quite stable when it comes to my shoulder and neck pain. Can it be cause I phoned the doctor? LoL Had a dentist appointment today and got the whole mouth cleaned up with a splitting headache as the prize for that. Oh well, it will pass. And got tons of painkiller...

My card then, because I actually managed to make on this time. I am so happy about that. Hate to let my teams down. Well, I had to make two cards as my first one wasn't Christmassy enough and therefore  something in a style I normally wouldn't use on my cards as my first love is coloring, not the card making it self. Why I don't paint pictures instead? Well, it takes to long and I am easily bored. LoL I used to paint in oil and has taken a few classes. The last one was different and we had to paint with really broad brushes. I think I lost the join and old technic there. Maybe it comes back to me who knows?

The image is from IndigoBlu. They have some fantastic stamps and I love this even if it's just first time out and I bought it way before last Christmas. I think I will use it a few more time this year as the cards get done really fast and I don't have to colour with my bad shoulder, on the other had the stamp is big and need it's strength to give a good print. 

I have embossed the image in detail white embossing poweder that has been laying around for ages. For the extra snowing effect I used some of the Frantage embossing enamel and some champagne flakes. Maybe I over did it a bit, but hey it was my first time and it was fun. You actually should try it out yourself sometime. Also don't forget to take a look at what my fellow teamies has been up to. You will be singing Christmas carols any minute now. :)
