Cool Winter Wishes

Another winter card for Joan's Garden and Oozak, using the first November sketch from Viva le Verve. This card uses a Hero Arts image, as well as the color scheme AND dry embossing for their November contest.  
The color scheme was a little different - wet cement, soft olive, red royal, soft granite, and tide pool.  The olive, red and tide pool (teal) are pretty obvious.  The soft granite is the grey mat that has been embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflakes folder.  The olive oval is also dry embossed, using a Stampin' Up! folder. The wet cement color is the body of the house (clapboards).  The rest of the image was colored with Copic Markers, and then I added white flocking to the image where snow is indicated.  The wet cement color just didn't work for snow. LOL!
