My first attemp at the prisma gamsol technique. I live in Australia and we don't have gamsol. So I substituted it for artist grade mineral turps. The blending sticks were available at my local art store and they were called "blending sticks for pastels".`
The snowflake brad was heated with a heat gun and dipped in thick embossing powder and re-dipped till achieved desired effect. Then smudged with white pigment ink.
