One of my favorite backgrounds to do is watercoloring with Tim Holtz's Distress Inks. It is so easy!! I lay some Distress Ink on my Tim Holtz Glass Mat, spray with water, and then lay my watercolor paper down on it. I repeat this process until I achieve the look I want. Super easy, and I love the results!
With this card, I used the Distress Ink colors Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers for my backgroud and then used a Gina Marie Designs Scallop Slimline die to cut out my background. I used Tim Holtz's Stampers Anonymous Weathered Winter stamp set with Versamark and heat embossed the snowflakes with White Sparkle embossing powder from Hero Arts. I then stamped some smaller snowflakes from the stamp set Snowflake Wishes using Gorgeous Grape ink from Stampin' Up! and cut a couple of snowflakes from the coordinating die set. I then added some Snow Tec to the snowflakes to make them look like they have snow on them. The sentiment is from the Weathered Winter stamp set. Then I added some teal bling to complete the look. The mat is Indigo Island cardstock from Stampin' Up and the card base is 110lb white cardstock. I love the weathered look of these snowflakes! Added bonus, this is a quick card to make!
