A Little Hint of Color

Hi Everyone,
I'm late in posting today....I've been so busy. I've had this card in my head for awhile and just got to it.
It's yet another simple card, but I think Elegant.
I used the "Seeing Spots" Brass Template to dry emboss around the edges of the card. I wanted to keep it simple as not to take aways from the beauty of that.
As I sat here doing that I remembered something we learned at convention and that was to remove color form a stamp with your Blender Pen. So that I did, but just to the wreath. I then markered that in with my Handsome Hunter marker. It's just the right touch of color. I did a similar version of this card using the Cracked Glass technique at a recent class and as I was teaching it I was telling everyone I should have done the door "Red". Well they all did they're doors red and it was awesome. You know those pictures that are out there that are black and white with just a hint of color...well that's what I was thinking on both counts here, yet this is even more subtle.
Card stock used is Very Vanilla, and Basic Gray. I used the Basic Gray Ink Pad as well.
I had to give the snow a lift by adding some Dazzling Diamonds to my snow covered areas with my two-way glue pen.
That's it for today, I hope you enjoy my little creation.
I hope you all have a Stampinglee Good Day!
