Faux 3-D Snowflake

This "looks" like it is a dry embossed snowflake.
BUT, it's not.
I stamped this Stampendous snowflake in
Blue Iris Fluid Chalk Ink (Colorbox by Clearsnap0
onto light blue cardstock.
Now for the faux part.
Note that all the white is on the upper part
of every piece of the stamped image
Like light shining on it.
I used the Ranger white ink pen and
drew in all those white lines.
You really can not tell that it is NOT
raised until you feel the surface of the card.
This technique takes a little time, but
the stunning results are well worth the effort.
The final touch is to sponge with the dark blue iris
chalk ink around all the edges of the white A2 card base.
