These two cards are for Hero Arts Holiday challenge.
I work nights so when I'm driving home in the morning the sun is just coming up. I LOVE how it highlights the tops of the trees. My first card was inspired by it
of trees is just the top of the tree sponged in with forest moss. I used tumbled glass and a ripped piece of paper to sponge in the shadows of snow. I finally unmasked my tree and colored it in using crushed olive, peeled paint, and forest moss. I added some stardust stickles to the garland and my gems/pearls to the tree. Finally I outlined the snow banks with glossy accents.

Hopefully this inspires you to play with your inks. Sometimes you don't need alot of bulk to have great dimension!
