Snowflakes

This week chrissie and Mandi say "Once more we are back to the second week of the month and so our challenge is for a
ONE LAYER CARD. The special feature we would like to see this week is for you to
USE INK
** This does include ink pads **
...hopefully in a way you haven't tried before.... or using a favourite technique.
If you can avoid using the computer this week, that would be great, but we wouldn't want to to miss a week if the computer is your only method of card making"
Mmm ... Well one layer cards don't worry me too much but I have always ended up with an inky mess whenever I have tried to use ink for anything other than plain old stamping!
I found a pack of sponge daubers I had never opened and some inks and had a play..  I overstamped with a Papermania snowflakes stamp and added gems to the centres of the snowflakes.  I'm quite pleased with it and will have another go later...
