Airbrushed Christmas Card

I have been playing with my Letrajet Air Marker System again and I am realy pleased with the results!

I cut the flower shapes with my 'Poinsettia' Shapeabilities
I stamped the snowflakes with Memento Ink 'Rich Cocoa'
I airbrushed around the shapes when they where still inside the dies with a Gold Metalic ProMarker
I also airbrushed the edges of the cardstock with the same pen
Simple but effective!
Hubby said I should have stamped the snowflakes evenly onto each petal
.......but I wanted to give the effect of them being cut from a patterened paper
He sees everything with an engineers eye even art lol!

I love your card. I agree that the snowflakes should not be placed evenly, it would have looked very stiff!
...and I am an engineer :)
