One Sheet Wonder Project- Snowflakes

 I love One Sheet Wonder projects.  Especially when I'm feeling like I need a creative boost.  Here is my lastest one using a snowflake theme.

The picture on the right shows the handmade background paper that I started with.  I used the White Outline Technique to create it.  It's so easy and the end result is so stunning.

I stamped the snowflakes in white craft ink on watercolor paper then embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Then I color washed the whole sheet with Twinkling H2O watercolors.  It doesn't show in the picture, but it has a gorgeous shimmer.

After the watercolor paint was dry, I used copy paper and a hot iron to remove the clear embossing.  Just cover the paper with the copy paper and iron it.  The embossing will soak into the copy paper and leave you a crisp white, flat image.

Once the background paper was done, I challenged myself to make as many cards as I could with it.  I got 5 out of this one.  Here they are....

I hope you enjoyed this One Sheet Wonder project.  I have another one to share this week.

These are gorgeous. I had forgotten about the one sheet technique --- you sure show off your paper to the best in each card. I can't decide which I like the most!
