My absolute favorite set from the 2015 Holiday Catalog is the Flurry of Wishes set. But, I’m a sucker for snowflakes, so there you have it. This set is on the retiring holiday products list and availability can only be guaranteed through December 28th. Be sure to get it before it’s gone!
Steps to Recreate
For this card, I first saturated about 3/4 of a panel of watercolor paper with water using an Aqua Painter. I used a reinker to add a few drops of Bermuda Bay ink onto the water and let it spread where it wanted to go. I did help facilitate the spreading of ink by tilting the paper and using an Aqua Painter to get the stubborn areas, but I tried to keep it as organic as possible. I added some salt while it was still wet for effect. When it was completely dry, I went over the white area of the card with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen (you’ll be able to order this in January).
The snowflakes were inked in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I also embossed a couple of snowflakes on Vellum paper and punched them with the coordinating snowflake punch.
For the final touches, I used the Wink of Stella pen on the wooden snowflake element to give it some shine. The rest is just bling!
The photos don’t do these cards justice. The Wink of Stella is super shiny and the lights from my studio drown it out a bit.
