Metallic FX  mica powders from Dreamweaver create some lovely pearly effects & are usually used with Dreamweaver stencils & embossing paste. I wanted to give them a different treatment & have used them to paint with & to dust onto Versamark (or any watermark pad). To create the forest background I've used the smaller of the trees from the Traditional tree set & have masked the pot & some of the lower tree branches (to make it appear smaller) with a Post It note before stamping with Versamark. After stamping dust lightly with the powders (purple & blue) & the powder will cling to the sticky ink. Remove excess powder with a cottonwool ball. For the snowmen I've stamped onto a spare piece of card & painted with the powders which I've mixed with a little water in a palette. When dry cut out  & mount on top of the background with 3D foam pads. As you can see I've added a little shading to the snowy background with the paint too. To complete the design I've mounted onto the mauve & silver card & added the ribbon & bow to the top of the card which is a tent fold. The sentiment has been stamped onto the main image & to finish I've snipped the Star Cluster into small pieces & added to each corner.
