The background on this card I did with a piece of acetate, distress ink pads plus a spritzer bottle of water. Run the ink pads over the acetate, spray with water then touch the card with the wet acetate. I painted the Penny Black snowman stamp with the same colour ink pad - broken china. The other colour was antique linen, Stickles for the glitter on the hat. The snowflakes are a MS punch.
