Winter Wonderland

I went to town with a friend today and bought something I have been wanting to try for a while. Can you guess by looking at my card?
Alcohol Inks!
I am very new to these but wanted to try tonight before bed. This little winter scene is done on glossy paper. I dabbed the alcohol ink on and then added some blender to soften. I stamped the memory box trees in black and my amuse penguin. Then added some snow with my white gel pen and some Verve snowflakes with chalk ink. The "winter wonderland" sentiment is Verve Visual as well. The other colors on the penguin are with glaze pens and I tried to make him look like he was hanging an ornament on the tree.
Looks to me like a first snowfall, with the green being covered with snow. Just like out my window right now! Our green lawn is being dusted with our first snowfall, so pretty.
There are A LOT of techniques that I am itching to try with these inks!

Happy Stamping!
