We're still celebrating snow at Jingle Belles this week, so I had to pull out my all-time-favorite snowflake stamp from Hero Arts ... you know, one of those stamps you won't part with even though it's no longer produced.
I embossed with Versamark and then used light blue watercolor paint for resist. After drying a bit with my embossing gun, I wiped the embossed snowflakes with a baby wipe (which I discovered removed a little of the watercolor, but I liked the effect.) I intended for the snowflakes to be my entire card base, but I futzed-up the embossing on one side, so I trimmed it down and designed around what I had left.
I always make sure I paint a piece of watercolor paper larger than my image, so I can use the trimmed borders as coordinating paper to stamp my sentiment. This Stampotique sentiment usually goes on the inside of my holiday cards, but I decided it worked well with the snowflakes.
I finished with some iridescent snowflake and silver sequins.
