I had some time to play with some new stamps I received for Christmas and wanted to make a card.
I just needed to make a blue card! lol
I began by using the Splash Watercolour Technique for my background with Distress Oxide inks. Love how those inks layer over each other.
When that was dry, I rubbed the whole piece with an anti-static bag then stamped the snowflakes with Versamark and white heat embossed them. Using the same colour of ink as the background, I randomly stamped some snowflakes to give a shadow effect.
I splattered the whole piece with water first then white acrylic paint but it still needed some depth and interest so I used a piece of drywall tape and stenciled randomly around the snowflakes.
This new to me sentiment is wonderful, I stamped it using my Misti. I put a drop of Nuvo in the centers of the snowflakes to finish off my card.
Hope you are staying toasty warm; its unusually cold here.
Thanks for the visit.
