Hello friends. The theme this week at Merry Monday is "Let It Snow". I had fun creating my card and using Peerless Water Colors for the first time. I had heard of these water colors before, but didn't really have a clue what they were when I bought them. They come in a little booklet form, and you just snip off a tiny piece of the paper (it's like a cardstock weight) and put it in a little tray of water and the color dissolves. I used the Sky Blue for my background...take a look:
Isn't it such a pretty blue? And so easy to water color with...I loved it! After it dried, I added a few snowflakes from MFT's Cool Day stamp set and embossed them with white embossing powder. Next I stamped (and masked) that cool snow dude on the ice chunk and used my Copics to color him. I fussy cut him out and pop dotted him to the water colored layer. I added a sentiment from PTI's Warmest Wishes and then mounted to a white card base. You can't see it in the photo, but I also added some sparkle to the blue in the bears hat and scarf, using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen (it's like a WOS pen, but has MUCH more sparkle to it!!). This was a pretty quick and easy card, but I really like how it turned out!
Lots of time to play along this week yet, and some gorgeous inspiration from the DT, so check it all out right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
