Third Festive Art Journal Page

This is my third 'Festive' art journal page for the December prompts over on Art Journal Prompts.  Having had a 'snow day' last week, I decided to create a snow scene.
1  Mixed media card (18.5cm x 19.5cm) with a piece of copy paper used to clean up my blending mat covering the page.
2  As some of the text on the back of the paper showed through a little, I added some stamping using the script stamp from the Simply Angelic set by Andy Skinner (Forget-Me-Not Archival ink).
3 The Winter Trees by Sue Wilson and the Frosty the Snowman die from Crafter's Companion were used with the remaining off-cut of mixed media card.  Once die cut and embossed they were added to the page and sealed with matt medium.
4  Once dry, a Faber-Castell Pitt pen (#153) was used to add shading and detail.
5  'Snow' was added to the trees and the ground by adding Nuvo Diamond Glitter over the top of areas coated with the Nuvo glue pen (Tonic Studios).
6 'Snowflake' and 'Kisses' from the stamp set of the same name (designed by Lisa Horton for Creative Expressions) were stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed in True White detail embossing powder.  The words were highlighted using an Ecoline pen.
7  The final touch was to add the smallest snowflake from the Snowflake Kisses set, heat embossed in the same manner, randomly over the top part of the page.
