Silver snowflakes

It was time to make my inchies for the monthly swap on the Bubbly Funk forum, this time with the theme of 'winter'. The background is Curious Metallics silver, on to which I stamped with four lovely little snowflake stamps from a set by Wild Rose Studio (these were in my prize parcel that I received the other day from Hando Hippo - you can read about it here). I inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver. I added a few Kanban bling gems (these were also in the parcel from Handy Hippo) and then dipped the edges of the inchies into glue and then into Art Institute glitter.

I'm linking for the following challenges:
