Anything Goes at Stampotique

For the month of December at Stampotique Designers Challenge blog
 it is week 2 of an "anything goes" month.
I have made a card using my newly acquired stamps "Snowy Fran" and "Bow Heart"
Background is a very subtle gelli print where I pushed Tim Holtz alterations snowflake into the paint prior to lifting a print, if you look closely you can see the snowflake impressions that this left.
The hearts are from Dylusions stamp set "Inbetweenies. I have coloured the hearts with festive berries Distress Marker, I haven't really got to grips with these but they are brilliant at colouring over acrylic paint so that'll do for me!!
Some of the hearts have had Rock Candy distress crackle put on them and some rock candy distress glitter, you can just about see it in this photo, or then again perhaps not.

For the sentiment "Snow in love with you!" I have just cut the words from an old book which just happens to be A Christmas Carol, not that you could tell, but it did allow me to find the Merry Christmas phrase, and then doodled around..
My main image has been stamped and cut from the same book paper
and she sits upon a piece of corrugated card that I have painted with blue patina which makes it look very icy, I have sewn this on for a little icy texture. The bow heart which hangs from her has had glossy accents applied and a dusting of rock candy distress glitter.
I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:-
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Let it Snow
