I got a little carried away using the mini tip sponge applicator and white craft ink and over did the snowy look on the trees in the back ground. It looks more like a blizzard than a peaceful forest scene. I liked it anyway. I may have gotten a little carried away with embellishments, too. I just don't think to use them lots of the time and this time I just kept adding stuff.
I masked off the snowman by TAC-Snowtag and added the trees in the bg. After painting I put falling snow in place with white craft ink and the seeds stamp from Petal Pushers. I added addtional snow to the trees with a mini tipped sponge applicator and put snow on the ground with a sponge dauber. I used white EP on everything.....but I guess that is obvious as you can barely see the trees.

Well, where I live we have blizzards all the time -- this looks very natural to me -- I find it interesting to read about all the different applicators you use -- and this is not over-embellished one bit -- it's a goregous card!!! That scarf actually looks so wooly, fuzzy and warm!!!
