Snowflake Wishes with a WOW background - with Video

 For the last couple of days I have been obsessed with Snowflakes, especially Snowflakes on WOW backgrounds- backgrounds created by adding ink to coloured card stock,  e.g two shades of blue to Real Red card stock, to Pacific Point, and Gorgeous Grape card stock,  using blender brushes.

In creating cards in all those colour combinations, I used a carry over stamp set and coordinating dies, Snowflake Wishes with Snowflake dies.

Here is one of the cards as well as a video tutorial on how I created the background and put the card together.

Stamp:  Snowflake Wishes
Dies:  Snowflake Dies
Papers:  Thick Basic White, Gorgeous Grape, Basic White, Gold Foil
Accessories:  Blender brushes, Foam Adhesive, White acrylic paint

The background is created by applying the following colours of ink on Gorgeous Grape card stock:  Misty Moonlight, Night of Navy, and Basic Black using a blender brush.  See video for technique
Diluted white acrylic paint is splattered on the finished background to give the appearance of snow (stars)

Here are pictures of other cards made using  snowflakes.
