Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing another Christmas card. This one has a Smooshed background made with diluted Inka Gold wax paste. I simply dabbed a small bit of three colours of Inka Gold (jade, steel blue, platinum) onto my craft mat and spritzed with a little water. Then I dropped a small panel of mixed media paper on top. I pressed down to pick up the colour, and repeated until I was happy with the layers of colour. I LOVE working with Inka Gold ... it has a metallic finish and so there's a lot of shimmer and shine to this card (which is hard to see in the photo).
I stamped the snowy trees on top in Versamark ink and heat embossed in white. I die-cut two snow drifts, and layered them at the bottom, stamping the sentiment in soft gray.
I'm playing along with this week's Merry Monday Challenge #172 - use watercolouring on your card). I love watercolouring and watercolouring techniques ... so I just HAD to play along! :)
Also, Addicted to Stamps & More is looking for holiday cards this time, so I'm joining in there.
And I used snippets of white card stock to make my snowdrifts, so I'm heading over to the Snippets Playground for some fun! :)
That's it from me today. Hope you are all having a great week. And thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit! :)
