So, Spectacular Backgrounds,  I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do.
With this adorable winter holiday image from Crafty Sentiments, I needed 
to make it wintery.  
(Harriet Lantern) you can find her HERE.

I took glossy card stock and embossed it with the background stamp from Fiskers with white embossing powder.
Then using a multi color blue ink pad, I brayered the whole card front in the shades of blue.
Wiped off the card front with a cloth. 
Colored her up using Copic Markers and there you go. One holiday card done!

I haven't used this technique in many years.  So fun to go back and revisit!
