Brrrrrrrrr

Here I am again only just in time for Grungy Monday using another one of Tim's techniques which you can find HERE.
The technique has been applied to my background piece, using tumbled glass and broken china Distress Inks. I then used the Snow Flurries on the edge die to add the snowflakes. Alpha parts (numbers) were painted with fresco paint and added to the snowflakes along with a winter definition.
I stamped the snowman from Stampotique with Archival Ink manganese blue and added highlights with my white gel pen.
The piece that I cut away using the on the edge die has been added to the inside of the card with part of the snowman image added to the bottom corner.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend.  Tracy x x

Fabulous! Love the way you have put the negative die to use in inside of the card, guess that would work well on the envelope too?
