Winter Wonder Window

Making A Window Card
Making a window card is easy as choosing a shape, cut out
 the shape and stamp a scene behind the cut out shape.
Be sure to check out Through the Window challenge
at Heart 2 Heart for more window ideas.
I cut out the snowflake using water color paper. 
 After wetting the water colored the paper I painted it 
with a light blue. While it was wet I sprinkled salt on the 
blue paint to get the snow effect. I stamped a snow scene
 in the window and put the card together. Make your window

Water Color Fun

With Splats of Color
Adding a splat of color to your card has never been easier.
Just use our new CTMH Water Color paints, water color paper and
brushes. Add a sentiment with black ink and embellish with any
assortment of black embellishments.
For the splat technique cut your water color paper 1" bigger on all
sides of the size you will want to use. Attach the paper to a piece of
cardboard with washi tape to secure. Wash the paper with clear water
using the widest brush. Choose your colors and add your splats with the
largest round brush. Each splat will run in the wet water that you washed
on the paper. They will run together to make other colors. I started with
the red color, then added some yellow and then the green. I just let 
the splats run on the paper wherever they wanted to go. Let the paper
dry completely before you make your card.
