Bright Winter Card feat. Stencil and Liquid Watercolors

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello, crafty friends! Sveta is here with a bright winter card made using a stencil and liquid watercolor brush marker refills. This time I decided to use a stencil to create an embossed background. First, I fixed the Diamond Snowflakes Stencil into place with washi tape. Then, with the help of my finger, I applied embossing ink directly from the ink pad by tapping it around the stencil. I chose Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder for these cute tiny snowflake ornaments. Then I took the Lagoon Liquid Watercolor Brush Marker Refill and Mountain Mist Liquid Watercolor Brush Marker Refill and, using a wide brush, started to make vertical strokes. The first one was only with Lagoon, I added Mountain Mist on the second one, the third one was almost totally just Mountain Mist, and then I repeated the same process, this time in reverse order. Some strokes got a “dry” look and that’s exactly what I wanted to see. This effect reminds me of the Northern Lights. I also used Metallic Silver Liquid Watercolor Brush Marker Refill to add splashes to the background. For the sentiment, I went with Hello Winter Stamp and Die Bundle and placed it in the center. For both the sentiment and the card base, I chose to use Pale Gray Cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed my bright winter card today! Thanks for dropping by!
