Smooshed Sparkly Snowflakes

I have a couple more cards made using the 'smooshing' technique. I liked the colours on this blue inky butterfly card that I bloggged last week so much, that I 'smooshed' a couple more pieces of watercolour paper in the inks before I cleaned everything up. I stamped and embossed some Hero Arts snowflakes in white on one of the pieces, and created these two cards:

I simply trimmed a couple of squares from the sheet, matted them on to plain white card, and added a Lili of the Valley sentiment. I also spritzed the blue panels with a spray made from silver Cosmic Shimmer pigment mixed in water...they're really sparkly in real life, but despite taking the below photo in bright sunlight, I couldn't really get it to show up on camera.
