Wednesday Words

I'm just sneaking this card in at the last minute to the challenge at CAS Watercolour.

Here's my card:

I smooshed some distress ink onto watercolour card using an acrylic block and once it was dry stamped straight on top.

I added a few snowflakes using the same colour of distress ink as the background - love how using this technique allows the watered down colour and the intense colour of the stamping to match so well.

I finished off the card with icy sparkle on the snowflakes, sky and tree branches using Stickles.

Stamps: Visible Image, Four every season; Uniko, Snowflake serenade
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, blueprint sketch
Stickles: Star dust

It's been great to have your company today, thanks so much for dropping by.

And keep crafting!
