The Friday Mashup! Challenge #234: winter theme

The Friday Mashup! Challenge #234: winter theme

For my card I used Distress inks (cracked pistachio, broken china and hickory smoke).
I 'm not sure if they match exactly or  even a little  with pool and mint and slate.

I used the Tim Holtz Holiday knit stencil and inked cracked pistachio and broken china through it.
I then brushed on some turqoise Perfect Pearls to give the inked bits a lovely shine.

To make the banner I started with a lighter gray piece of cardstock, but then thought slate might be much darker, so I swiped hickory smoke over it. Dried it well with my heatgun and then used white embossing powder and the sentiment from Avery Elle (let is snow) for the sentiment.
I cut a fishtail end to it and mounted it with foamdots.
I've added a strip of slate ish colored glitter tape with stars to tie it all back together and for shimmer!.

I love glitter ;-)
used taperunner to add the "knitted" panel
