One Sheet Wonder Project- Snowflakes
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....
