Funky Fossil Designs "Snow Crystal" stencilled Christmas Card

I've made another style of Christmas card this morning, using products by Funky Fossil Designs.

For the background, I used three Distress Oxide Inks (Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon.  Applied as a wash with a paint brush, graduating the colour from dark to light.

Once dry, I placed the Funky Fossil "Snow is Falling" stencil over the top and used "Speckled Egg" Distress Oxide Ink through the stencil.

I rubbed the surface with an anti-static bag and then lay the Funky Fossil "Snow Crystal" stencil over the top and applied Wow! Clear embossing ink through the stencil.  After lifting the stencil, I then coated the area with Wow! Rich Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.

I used the same process for the "Noel" sentiment, which is part of the Funky Fossil "Elegant Ornaments" stamp set.

Finally, I used a metallic gold pen to draw a line around the edge of the card.  I used a white pen to add highlights to the snowflake.
