starry winter wonders

It's an oldie, but a goodie the Autumn Leaves Winter Wonders stamp set.

Took some watercolor paper, smooshed Distress Inks in Shaded Lilac and Evergreen Bough onto my craft sheet, spritzed with Perfect Pearls water and created my background piece.

Heat embossed the wonderful sentiment and hung a strip of sheer ribbon on the panel before adhering it to my cardbase.


I'm entering these challenges:

Stempelkueche #29

AAA Cards #49 - Word Play

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - CAS Christmas (am I pushing it here?)


Not really ready for the holidays yet, but I guess they'll be here before I know it! Have a lovely day.

  5. Such a beautiful watercolor background! I love the structure you've created with your technique. The piece reminds me of ice and snow as well as of a deep blue sea under a purple sky. So you could have used it for a summer card as well. Amazing! Thanks so much for playing along with us at the Stempelküche challenge this time.
