I wasn’t sure if I was going to like these colors together but I love them!  I used Marina Mist and Elegant Eggplant.  My inspiration came from Catherine Pooler who brayered a card  with these colors but I sponged my color onto Whisper White cardstock.  First, I used my new stamp set, Snowflake Soiree (LOVE IT) and stamped the snowflakes with Versamark. My smallest snowflake on the greeting is from the set Jolly Bingo Bits.  I sprinkled white embossing powder and heated it up with my heat tool.  I never get tired of watching the magic happen when I emboss!!! After embossing, I sponged Marina Mist using a circular motion all over my card.  Then I came in with the Elegant Eggplant. When I was done, I took a tissue and wiped over the top of the card. The embossing resists the ink but I had to wipe away the extra ink sitting on top of the embossed images.   I did my greeting in the same way.  I was afraid the Elegant Eggplant was a bit too dark on the greeting but I like it! I made another one that I will post tomorrow with the same colors but it is a bit different. I misted my card with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed in a spray bottle with rubbing alcohol) and it glitters beautifully in person.
