Merry Monday #202 {Let it Snow!}

Kathy's challenge at Merry Monday this week is 'Let It Snow'. I didn't have any stamps relating to snow so I decided a little white splatter on the background would do the trick. And it did, but, I am so pleased I didn't have visitors at the time......when I passed a mirror a while later my face and glasses could also have been entered in the challenge. What a hoot. It took some scrubbing to remove it as I had used acrylic paint to get opaque splatters. I really need to refine my splattering technique!! Perhaps a splattering booth is required, with protective gear. LOL

Here is the inspiration photo.




 I chose very non-traditional colours.  I used Winsor and Newton Watercolour paints for the background. The stamp set is W Plus 9's 'Woodland Wreath' with a few pieces from other sets.

Karen, amazing card! I am absolutely in love with your water colored background with white splashes. All the elements are so appropriate, and the white sentiment die cut stands out pretty. - Sweet Kobylkin
