Here's a card I sent out for a "swap". The theme of the swap was Winter Forest and this is what came into mind for me. Two separate stamp sets, both from Stampin' Up. I love embossing folders/texture plates, it seems like I always use the snowflake one like this. It went over well and ended up being a really, really fun swap!
Image was colored with very limited Copics. In order to acquire most of the shading I used the same color and just went over the shadow areas again, later, when the ink had dried!
