Jingle All the Way - SFYTT

I've been so inspired lately by mixed media and watercolor projects on Pinterest and YouTube, so when I sat down to play along with Reverse Confetti's December Sketch For You To Try, I knew I wanted to incorporate at least a tiny bit of an artsy look.

First, here's the December sketch:

Isn't that a fun one? For challenge guidelines, prize details, and the link list, visit the Reverse Confetti blog. You have until December 29 at noon CST to enter.

My snowflakes are die-cut with Reverse Confetti's LET IT SNOW Confetti Cuts out of a panel that I watercolored in different shades of blue, then splattered with dark blue pigment.

The horizontal piece is made of layers of card stock, patterned paper, a doily piece, and some torn linen vellum topped with a pop of black diagonal stripe washi tape. More splattering in the same colors that I used for the snowflakes.

The sentiment, from TINSEL 'N TRIM, is stamped in Memento Luxe Teal Zeal onto a light gray card stock background panel. The background panel is also splattered with metallic silver and white watercolor.

Last, I added a sparkly twine bow with jingle bells tied to the ends, rounded the corners of the background panel, and mounted it to a white top-fold card base.

Hope you've enjoyed my loose sketch interpretation!

Amy, I love the card you made.

Can you share your secret as to how you did the ink splatter? What sort of ink did you use for this affect?

I like the splattering idea and do you use a paint brush for the splattering?
