Svitlana is here.
I believe you all had a good run of holiday card making. Now with Christmas literally around the corner, I believe that the majority of cards are made and sent.
I personally, at this period, still want to make something winter-related. Today, I will be sharing a winter thank you card with you.
I started by making the watercolor wash background. First, I wet a watercolor panel with clear water. Then I scribbled Dusk and Sea Breeze watercolor brush markers from the Spring Garden Set onto the back side of a fold top sandwich bag. You can use some other plastic product of similar properties of course. I sprayed some water onto the bag and placed it onto the panel, the back side down – the side where I had my markers’ scribbles.
Then I rubbed the bag with my fingers, spreading pigment around. I dried the panel a bit with my heat gun and placed the bag with leftover pigment onto the panel again, adding the second layer of watercolor messiness.
Next, I foam mounted the watercolor onto a white card base.
I also made a similar background on another piece of watercolor paper. I let this piece dry completely and die-cut a couple of snowflakes from the Layered Snowflakes Die Set. I also die-cut one snowflake out of the same watercolor paper.
After that, all the snowflakes were adhered onto the card.
Finally, I felt that this card needed something more and added some Pure White Ink Spray splatters onto it.
Below you can find the video where you can see how this card was made. You can watch it here or in HD on Altenew’s YouTube channel:
Have a wonderful day!
