I layered an old book page on top of this that was painted with a layer of dilute gesso, and then inked with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress inks. Text by stamped at the based (Limited Edition) and a slide mount added in matching colours. Image inside the slide is by Zettiology.

This was painted over with H2o's and Pearl Ex Palette paints. The edges of the raided gesso was highlighted with gold krylon, and snowflakes stamped onto them. The snowflake embellishments were made from air drying clay, painted with Lumieres.

Another card using the challenge image. The image was tinted sepia and printed onto a tranparency. The background was made using glossy card. A stamp of spots / snow was stamped using VersaMark, then distress inks were applied to a craft mat (tea dye, vintage photo & a little Walnut Stain). These were spritzed with water and the VersaMarked card laid onto it face down. This was then dried off with a heat gun, and Antique linen was applied DTP over the whole thing. The text was created from stickers.
