Snowflakes - Distressed & Embossed (Technique)

Happy Tuesday!

We have a new challenge for you today
@ Digital Tuesday...it's a color challenge,
kraft, blue & white!

"Whenever a snowflake leaves the sky,
it turns and turns to say good-bye!"
Kraft cardstock, Tim Holtz distress ink (salty ocean),
SU! stamps (snowflake spot), white emb powder,
Versamark ink, computer-generated sentiment.

**Using distress ink & water with digis...

I used Tim Holtz distress ink & water to create the blue background.  I had already printed out the white cardstock with the sentiment on it, so to keep it "clean" while adding the color, I ran my Tombow removable tape runner over the words. After heat drying the background & then the embossed snowflakes, I simply rubbed off the removable tape.  cool, huh?  

Have a wonderful day!

I also shared today's creation with -
