Season of Love

Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with a shimmery card to share. This one was snow much fun to watercolor.

I was in the mood for some emboss resist watercoloring, so started by embossing snowflakes from the adorable Cheerful Snowmen set on watercolor paper, then masking off the edges of the panel and started on my background. I did wet on wet, plopping Well Blue Me Down randomly onto the wet paper. I dried the layer, then wet the area again and plopped some Hint of Mint in the other areas. I continued doing this until I had the mottled snowy day kind of look I was going for.

Next I moved on to this sweet snowman. Don't you love his little banner? I embossed him in black on watercolor paper, then watercolored with the same two colors, adding in some Bronzed Bombshell, Freshly Squeezed, and Pink Moscato for the little details.

a snowman needs to shimmer, so I finished off with a light coating of Angel Wings on the snowman body.  Then I hand trimmed around the image and set aside. The sentiment is embossed in black on the panel, then I popped the snowman image up on dimensional foam tape and added some shabby edges for a rustic touch.
