Fireside Christmas - Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #31

This week's colour challenge involved the following colours:  Real Red, Chocolate Chip, and Kraft.  I used Whisper White as my neutral.
The Stamp set "Fireside Christmas" and the Iridescent Ice Technique was used to make this card using the above colours.
 Here's how I did it.
The image was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink, and the stockings, wreath ornaments and fireside ashes were coloured with Real Red ink and a blender pen.  Versamark was used to cover the entire image. Then Iridescent Ice embossing powder was applied and set with a heat gun.  This made the entire image shimmer with a wonderful glow!
Kraft cardstock embossed with the new Snowflake embossing folder on only one side of the card front, forms the base of the card.  The chocolate chip designer paper(retired) was edged with Real Red cardstock punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch. The button was made using the Buttons #5 die and the Big Shot (using Real Red cardstock).  Illuminate top coat Smooch accent was applied to the button to make it shimmer.
Accessories used:  Modern label punch, Real Red grosgrain ribbon. stampin dimensionals, small glue dots
