Why not Christmas?

Hi, I haven't entered a Merry Monday challenge in awhile, so I thought I would today, as I love working with blues.  The challenge is monochrome blues.  I started with a piece of Tim Holtz's water color paper.  The first thing I did was stamp some snowflakes from PaperTrey Ink's Snowflake Medley Stamp Set with VersaMark Ink onto the water color paper and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I smeared some TH's Broken China and Tumbled Glass ink on to my kraft sheet and spritzed them with lots of water and "smooshed" my water color paper onto the watered down ink.  I also stamped some of the snowflakes with the watered down ink and stamped them on the water color paper after it had dried.  After those snowflakes had dried, and stamped a few more snowflakes with both the Broken China and Tumbled Glass ink to finish off the card front.  I adhered it to a piece of Stampin' Up Marina Mist card stock.  I added my finishing touch by die cutting out a snowflake from PTI's Snowflake Medley Die Collection out of SU's Marina Mist card stock and stamped Tis the Season from PTI's Signature Christmas stamp set with SU's Night of Navy ink.  I then covered the whole snowflake with VersaMark ink and Recollections Glitz embossing powder and heat set to add some dimension to the snowflake.  I added some ribbon and pop dots before placing the snowflake on my card. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to check out MM Challenge #149 for some beautiful monochrome blue cards .
