Hello, everyone! Happy Friday! I'm thrilled to be joining Ingrid and her super talented Design Team as Guest Designer at Mixed Media World today for Deb's December Inspiration challenge. Here is a card I made using the colors on her inspiration image below.

I started with Ranger Manila card stock and spread Golden crackle texture paste over it. While it was still wet, I embedded Recollections sequins in the paste in two corners. After it dried, I added Golden Glass Bead Gel and painted the entire thing in DecoArt Americana Titanium White paint. I blended Distress inks in Ground Expresso, Black Soot, and Hickory Smoke. Finally, I wiped some metallic rub on wax in Nubian with my finger. Below is the only in process shot I took; I was so carried away in the making and not in the taking!
The top most snowflake was painted with Distress paint in Weathered Wood using Tim Holtz Paint marbling technique. I added a layer of DecoArt Weathered Wood Crackle Medium, and when dry, added Titanium white. I edged in Ground Expresso Distress ink.
The brown center snowflake is painted with DecoArt Media Burnt Umber, dried, and embossed. I sanded lightly and used Distress paint, Black Soot to edge. I used Ranger's Embossing Dabber, Sticky Embossing powder and Pumice Stone Distress Glitter for an icy look. I did the same thing to the foliage.
The bottom snowflake is also painted with Burnt Umber, then with Weathered Wood Crackle medium. I topped it with DecoArt Americana Grey Storm and Distress ink, Black Soot. I heat embossed the Tim Holtz sentiment using Stampin' Up Chocolate Brown powder.
I used Tim Holtz Sizzix Layered Snowflake die and accompanying Texture Fade to make my snow flakes and La La Land Winter Branches die for my foliage. The tag is Tim Holtz Sizzix Tiny Tabs and Tags die. The sentiment is Tim Holtz Mini Handwritten Holidays, and it is inked in Archival, Potting Soil and Watering Can (I love those names!).
I would like to enter this card in the following inspiring challenges:
