Christmas Card #4



Hello everyone, Happy December and Happy Holidays!
Today I am sharing with you a card that I made with a digital stamps from Beccys Place, it is part of the Snowman set. Both the snowman and the sentiment are part of this set.

 So I printed them on watercolor paper, I made a snow slope to ground my little snowman and his friend the birdie and then I used masking liquid on the snowman so that I could watercolor my background. After I finished with water coloring my background, I removed the liquid masking and I used distress inks to paint my little snowman and his birdie friend.
I used foam pillows behind my punched snowflakes and I used glitter on them.
I also used glitter on the snowman's hat, for the candy cane and his nose I used glossy accent and for the scarf I used my Wink of Stella clear brush.

 I would like to participate on the following challenges:

Love this icy watercolored background. Great job of masking while you did the background...and I love your snowhill too. I've never been able to get the w/color paper to print in any of my printers...so Congrats that you can do that. TFS & Merry Christmas

Your card is fabulous Olga, I especially love the way you've coloured the background! I really like the little snow hill you added, it grounds the snowman perfectly and makes such a cute little winter scene. Love the addition of the snowflakes and the great colours you used for the scarf and hat. Brilliant!
Cheers,
Beccy

Hello, Olga! This looks beautiful! I love your watercoloured background and snowman! I have not been able to watercolour with digital images because my printer ink will run - you are lucky to have the right kind of printer to do this! The added snowflakes are a nice detail! Your card turned out beautifully and I love it!
