Snowflakes everywhere!

This is another sample of the ghosting technique I taught yesterday at Green Valley Recreation. This is also the first time I used my Spellbinders Create A Flake 1. How cool is that die! Anyway, here's the card:

I used Bazzil and glossy cardstocks. Stamps are from the Ornamental Snowflakes and Great Greetings. I used VersaMark and Prussian Blue inks. I also used my brayer.

I think it is strange that I used the Prussian Blue ink on the white snowflake and it shows up more grey than blue! And I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen on the top snowflake and in the blue "star" in the very center of the snowflakes. The blue snowflake was created from the snowflake background technique. I really like this card and did give it away yesterday with the rest of my samples.

This is one of my favorite techniques and your card gets me in the mood for 2010 Christmas cards! Love the blues you chose (Prussian Blue is one of my go-to blues, I like it full strength and stamped off once).
