Watercolour Snowflakes

I have another couple of Christmas cards to share today...featuring stamps from the 'Delicate Snowflakes' set by Stampendous. I heat embossed them using clear embossing powder on watercolour paper, along with a sentiment (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous). I then watercoloured lightly over the top of the snowflakes using Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet & Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks. I distressed the edges a little, then added the watercolour panels to some kraft card blanks.
