Another Prima Paintable

I meant to post this card a while back, but it has been MIA since December. I am glad I found it for two reasons:

1. A fellow co-worker/friend kept reminding (nagging) me to bring the card into Angela's as a sample (you know who you are).

2. It wouldn't make sense to post this card in June. Although, come to think of it, it was 70 degrees yesterday, so it really doesn't feel like February anyway.

For today's card, I used the snowflake Prima Paintables paper and a selection of Twinkling H2O paints. I started by brushing water all over the paper with a foam brush. I then created a wash to brush over the paper using a lot of water and a smidge of Twinkling H20 paint. The Paintables paper is great because the patterns are printed on watercolor paper, and you don't have to worry about your paper warping.

I let the paper dry and then painted more Twinkling H2Os on top. I used a higher concentration of paint to color the snowflakes, so you can really see the shimmer of the paint. I finished by adding a rhinestone, some glitter glue, and some Stardust pen. I apologize that my picture of the card really stinks. It is hard to get a feel of the sparkly quality of the card from the picture. I hope the close up shows it a little better.
