A beautiful day

Just came back from snowshoeing and, although it’s cold, capture-decran-2017-01-08-a-13-39-12the trees in the sun were gorgeous since an ice storm left diamonds on all the branches 😉  Crazy, but I do love winter!!!  CAS Mix Up’s sister, CAS Watercolour Card Challenge for January is Snowflake!

I die cut a snowflake out of Strathmore watercolour paper and popped it out leaving the main piece and little pieces in place with wide green painters tape on the underside.  Grabbing Tombow Brush watercolour markers in 3 tones of blue, I slowly added the diluted colours being with the lightest and ending with the darkest.  Once done, I added table salt to add texture…then walk away LOL   Hard to do, but it worked.  Wink of Stella was brushed on the snowflake and then clear heat embossed twice.  Everything was paper pieced together and I added more shine with Daniel Smith Pearlescent Shimmer on the white areas.  “have a beautiful day” was stamped on a torn piece of vellum in Versafine vintage sepia and also clear heat embossed.

That’s my card for this beautiful day, have a good one & thanks for stopping by, HUGz Joannaimg_1377
