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.

Floral Birthday Card with Tinted Embossing Paste Background

I am still playing with embossing paste here. For this background, I mixed a little bit of Almost Amethyst ink into the clear embossing paste before spreading it across the stencil.

I die cut a flower out of green, and used the “petals” for leaves.

Almost Amethyst (retired), VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangles), Provo Craft (flower), stencil – Neat & Tangled, embossing paste – Dreamweaver/Wendy Vecchi/Studio 490 clear, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.
