Watercolored Ombre with Snowflakes Seasons Greetings Card


My Kuretake watercolors were on my table for another project last week, and I played around with watercoloring over my Neat and Tangled stencil, playing with an ombre look. I actually painted it light side at the top, but when I was putting this together, I thought the darkest blue needed to be at the top (sky), and the lightest at the bottom (snow).

Supplies: Stamp – Hero Arts, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy, Silver Mirror, ink – VersaMark, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, stencil – Neat and Tangled, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), My Favorite Things (snowflakes), embossing powder Ranger Silver Pearl, organdy ribbon – Offray.

  1. Really nice. Sometimes you need to turn things on their head! 😊

  2. I love the ombré effect you created for this card and the use of the silver to add sparkle.
