Snowflakes at Midnight

Well it's Saturday morning again and this really does only mean one thing..... A new LIM challenge!! and this week it's a One Layer Card with a theme of.... Use Ink... in a way you don't normally! And then I panicked....

I had a good root through my ink draws and found some old pearlescent ink from about 10 years ago and expecting them not to be any good dug them out finding this gorgeous dutch blue..... and then teamed this up with white brilliance ink ( which I only bought a couple of weeks ago).



Inspiration:
Less Is More: Week 28 One Layer Use Ink

Card Recipe:
Dutch Blue Permanence
Brilliance: Moonlight White
Snowflake stamps ( sorry not a clue what make had them about 5 years)
Pearls: The Hobby House

Have a great Saturday... I'm taking my mum on a falconry experience this afternoon so this is it from me today (well at least until later tonight...)
