Winter Song ( Take 2!)

Hello! It's always fun to share new things/techniques with you.
Today's card is a follow-up on a previous card that I made (see here).
 I am showing you the simple process of how I created this card.

Card stock: white and vellum (Michael’s), grey (DCWV)
Stamps: Label Love (Altenew), Winter Song (Penny Black)
Embossing powder: Stampendous (white, detailed)
Inks: Versafine (Tsukineko)
Accessories: silver strings (Michael’s), sequins (Simon Says Stamp), Le Plume Markers (Marvy Uchida), 3D pop dots (Recollections)

 TWO important things about this card: 
~emboss the image in white on vellum ( this works because of the "snowy" scene")
~color the images from the backside in blue, grey, red and yellow (the more vibrant, the better)
Missing You!
 You can use any markers (such as copics, Sharpie,...)  to color the backside of the vellum. As long as you have a plan before you color, you are good to go!

  I hope that you like this technique! And don't feel intimidated with a detailed stamp like "Winter Song". It really is easier than you think.
Thanks for stopping by!
