Hello and welcome to my blog!  This is my first blog posting, so we'll see how it goes...

I thought I would start by entering the latest Lawnscaping Challenge: Try a new technique.  

The new technique I tried was resist embossing!  It's such a fun technique and always seems like magic once ink is applied to the embossed image.  For this card, I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set "Let It Snow".  It's one of their new sets and includes a lot of great pieces.  I stamped the snowy background with versamark ink and then applied Ranger's holographic embossing powder for some *sparkle*!  I then used memento ink to create a night sky.  I used a masking technique for the moon and for the snowy hills.  Here's the finished card: 

I also added a little "snow" to the trees with the help of Sakura white gel pen: 

I just love how the gel pen adds a little texture to the card.  The card was finished with a sentiment from the same stamp set. 

I hope you like the card!  Thanks for looking!
