Lovely as a Tree snowed Christmas card

A little white gel pen Magic!
This card's main technique is watercolour washed background, I used Pacific Point re-inker & picked up the ink with an aquapainter & on a water spritzed sheet of watercolour paper I started to wash the colour from top to botttom squeezing the aquapainter on the way down to get the graduation of colour, when dry I stamped the trees inked in Stazon & highlighted the branches with a White gel pen to get the look of snow, quite simple really & such a pretty card IRL.

Tres Chic stamp, Scallop, 1/2" Circle punches, sponge, Pink Supanova Glitter & glue,
Paper Cutter (I used the scoring tool to score the Creamy Caramel CS every 1/2" both landscape & portrait) to create the waffle cone.
