Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing another snowflake card using red, purple and gold for the background. I love how the sparkly snowflake flourish pops on the saturated colours of the tag. And I love my new set of tag dies that I HAD TO HAVE after seeing Bonnie's gorgeous Christmas tags last year. Bonnie and I enable each other to shop! :)
I started by using liquid watercolour concentrate. I get mine from Dick Blick (house brand), but there are other brands as well. They are super concentrated with colour, so if I only add a little misting of water, I do get deep colours. Adding more water produces lighter shades.
I die-cut the snowflake sash from sparkly paper and inlaid it into the tag. I splattered gold over the tag and on the card front. Then I stamped some script in the same gold in in the center of the card front, and also as the "joy" sentiment under the tag. The tag is popped up with foam for added dimension.
This card is a reminder for two challenges. CAS Watercolour January Challenge - Snowflake.
And CAS Mix Up January Challenge - Liquid Colours
Both challenges are open until the 24th of the month, so there's still a few days to play along. I hope you'll join us!
ETA: My dear friend Bonnie just mentioned that this is perfect for the Poppystamps challenge #28 - Silent Snowflakes, to I'm entering there. :)
