Funky Fossil Folksy Christmas Snow Flurry Card

A few weeks back I had been playing with the Funky Fossil "Snow Flurry" Stencil, inking the surface and then spritzing water onto it, then printing the impression onto a plain piece of card.  The background of this card is one from that play session, where I have inked the stencil with two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet shades. I like the mottled look this achieves.

I then stamped the angel from the Funky Fossil "Folksy Christmas" Clear Stamp Set on to the bottom right hand corner of the card.  I then stamped the image again on an off-cut of white card.

Using Versafine Clair "Twilight" dark blue ink, I stamped the words, Love, Peace and Joy across the background, these words form part of the "Folksy Christmas" stamp set.  

I then stamped some snowflakes in the two shades of Distress Oxide Inks I mentioned earlier (Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon.

Returning to the angel stamped on the white card, I cut out the head and dress area, colouring with water colour pencils.  I then adhered it with foam pads over the angel image stamped on the card, which gives a nice 3D look, especially with the wings in the background.
