Watercolor Snowflakes

I have really been wanting to use the new Colorful Seasons Bundle.  So today I am sharing a card I made using the Watercolor Embossing Resist Technique.

On watercolor paper I stamped the snowflakes with Versa Mark & embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  Normally you use the Aqua Pinter & squirt the water directly onto the paper.  Which also works, however I like this way a little better, because your paper does not get as soaked.

Spritz the water color paper with water, then with the Aqua Painter start blending Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Dapper Denim. (squeezing the ink pad while closed puts ink in the lid and can be used for water color)  If your paper starts drying out a little to fast you can always spritz it again.  This will also help your colors blend together.

Die cut three snowflakes out of Vellum and paint with Wink of Stella.  Stamp sentiment with Dapper Denim.  Stamp stars from the Star of Light set randomly in the background with Marina Mist sentiment with Dapper Denim.   Attach ribbon,(yes I used the Night of Navy ribbon, but I liked the contrast with it) then attach all layers.

Attach snowflakes and add pearls.

Hope you enjoyed this card, let me know if you have any questions.
