Background: B000, B00, B10, C00, C1, G40, Opaque white ink

I used Marvy Liquid Applique and Stickles sparingly to look like snow on the branch.  I inked  background paper using the smallest branch from the stamp set using a VersaMark watermark stamp pad and used clear fine detail embossing powder.  I fixed the ink/embossing powder  with a heating tool.  I then sponged my memento and Distress Ink over the top.   I tried to match the colors I used with my Copic markers.
