CAS Watercolour Challenge- Reminder

Time is flying by and it is time for another card for the

Our theme this month is Watercolour Resist.

I began by placing the snowflake stamp from Hero Arts into my MISTI, stamped with Versamark ink and then white heat embossed.  By doing that, I created a resist to paint over.
Next, I used Brushos to watercolour the background.  To add further interest and texture to the background, I press some drywall tape onto my Colorbox white stamp pad and pressed it on areas of the painted background.
I die-cut the sentiment from STAMPlorations and added the blue gems to the snowflakes.

Adding my card to these challenges:
