Merry Monday ~ Watercolor

I have been playing with my watercolors and I had this pretty back ground sitting on my desk.  When I saw that Merry Monday was to use watercolors I thought this was perfect!
I added my Impression Obsession die of birch trees and the birds.  My snowy hills are from Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders with a little glitter added. Oh, I almost forgot...I used SSS stencil:  Falling Snow with embossing paste.
 
We are starting out with another gorgeous week here in the PNW...in the 70's so pleasant and nice.  Have a great week friends, I am off to watch my granddaughter play a VB game for her high school.  She is a freshman but made the varsity team...we love cheering her on!

  7. Hello Colleen: I absolutely love the incredible background sky you created for your gorgeous card, the falling snow looks amazing. I've never tried embossing paste but I keep seeing stunning projects made with it like your card that I will give this a try. Love the snowy hills with the glitter, beautiful detail.
    Thank you for sharing at Merry Monday.
