CC661 = Marina Mist, Cucumber Crush, Real Red (see colour sample in the challenge)
I don't have SU colours but was able to get very close to the colours with my Distress inks.
I used a technique I learned from Jill Foster at Penny Black. You need a MISTI for this and must remember to leave the stamp in place till the very end!
I used my mini Distress inks in various browns, reds, and greens to ink up the image, spritzing very lightly before stamping each time. I kept building up the layers of colours till I was happy. I used Distress markers to add the brown tips of the berries and the veins on the leaves.
When it was all dry, I inked up the whole stamp with Versamark, stamped over the watercolouring, and heat embossed with clear powder.
I then used Distress Tumbled Glass (tapped on a palette and slightly watered down) to paint a wash background all around it. The embossing powder acts as a resist for the background so you don't have to worry about the colours of the image running.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo - I find the Oxide inks are better for detailed or thinly lined images as they stamp more sharply.
At the end, I splattered with watered down white acrylic paint for snow.
