Fire and Ice at TioT

Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this fortnight the theme is Fire and Ice.
How you interpret this is up to you, hot or cold colours or as I've done cold colours - snow and ice reflecting last weeks weather.

It's  another little journal spread,  which started with a watery wash of Chipped Sapphire over a gessoed page. I then used embossing paste for the snow speckles and snowflakes and applied white embossing powder, which was heat set when dry.  There's also some background stamping with Iced spruce and some shading with Distress crayons along with a vellum snowflake that was smeared with Frosted lace stickles.  To finish I fussy cut some winter images found on the internet.

The DT have all interpreted this challenge differently, so please pop over to the main blog - you won't be disappointed.
