Thank you Snow Much, Life is Beautiful Watercolor Wash Background

Watercolor wash background

Here's another card I created using the watercolor wash background technique paired with Misty Moonlight, Seaside Spray, and Gorgeous Grape inks and Life is Beautiful stamp set.

You can see some of my creations using this color combo Here.

Here's How:

1. Spritz watercolor card front with water.  Create palettes of color in the ink pads of Misty Moonlight, Seaside Spray and Gorgeous Grape using reinkers.  Pick up the colors using a Water Painter and swipe onto the wet card front.  Add more color and or water as desired.  Set aside to dry completely.

2. Stamp tree and  snowflakes from Life is Beautiful using Night of Navy ink.  Stamp greeting from Snowflake Wishes using Night of Navy ink. I used my Stamparatus to get dark, stamped images. Pick up Night of Navy ink with water painter and color landscape below tree.

3. Apply a touch of shimmer using sponge and Frost White Shimmer Paint.

4. Attach to Night of Navy mat.  Attach to Gorgeous Grape card base.  Attach Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems to complete.

Happy Stampin'!
