Inking on a cold day

Happy Monday to all. Second week in December  already, 10 days of school left for the month.
It was bit cold during the weekend, the temperature fell to 12C....which is not very cold when compare to the minus, this year is going easy.
I did some inking on Saturday. I have these picture from Facebook to use as my inspiration.
I used a white base, and used many different shades of pigment ink in green, and purple to ink the first card. I love the after effect, it looks lovely to my eyes ;)
I put together the card yesterday evening.

I used a star stamp and heat embossed in silver, ans also doodled some starts with a silver gel pen as well. The die cut silhouette houses are from Paper Smooches.
The sentiment is from Kaisercraft.
I hope you all like the finished card.

A closer look at the embossed stars.

The second card is also inspired by a picture, but it is a one layer. I used 3 different shades of pigment inks from versamark to sponge the base in a gradient manner. the snowflakes are from Kaisrcraft, heat embossed with ranger's silver embossing powder.
The sentiment is from HLS.
