Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges - Theme Challenge #003

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am Denita, from Australia, and I am a Design Team Member for the Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges Blog Hop.
We would love for you to join in with our 'Festive Challenge' #003 for this week and you can add your 'Festive' creation to our gallery here.
 
I have a lovely and simple Christmas card for you to CASE, and not a traditional colour in sight. (I was inspired by a card on page 13 of the Holiday Catalogue.)
 
 I love 'Crumb Cake', and I love water colouring! So, I have combined both of my loves for this little creation.
I also love that you can get all your Christmas cards done with this design. Get your cardstock ready; cut it all up for the card base and also a mat to be embossed with the 'Falling Snow TIEF'.
Hint: You can stamp Santa and his sleigh prior to embossing; the stamped image slips in between the snow fall and it's easier this way than stamping after you have embossed the cardstock.
 
I cut up the 'Shimmery White' cardstock ready for the water colouring.
Now, this is the fun bit! Add water to the 'Shimmery White' cardstock using an 'Aqua Painter'. Then add the inks of your choice; I have used 'Lemon Lime Twist' & 'Emerald Envy' from the Classic Stampin' Pads.
 
Once your water colouring is completely dry, stamp your sentiment on top of the ombre colours. I then adhered some 'Basic Black' cardstock backing to my sentiment and used 'Stampin' Dimensionals' to layer it on my finished creation.
 
Thankyou so much for visiting me, and I hope to have inspired you for some Christmas card crafting? Make sure you visit all the Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenge Design Team blogs for more 'Festive' fun.
Have a wonderful day. D x
