Watercolor Sled

I did a little watercoloring and die-cutting today.

I picked three "ombre worthy" colors and painted them onto a small piece of watercolor paper with a waterbrush.

In the Meadow is my go to Christmas stamp & die set, which I paired with the snowflakes from Winter Penguin.

(stamps:Papertrey Ink In the Meadow  dies:Papertrey Ink In the Meadow Silhouettes/Winter Penguin snowflakes/Movers & Shakers Spinners (for tracing the hills)  other:Royal & Langnickel Watercolor paints,Ranger waterbrush)

This is for my nephew~he has a birthday in December, and I am always scrambling to make him a card at the last minute!

He lives in Hawaii, but got to visit one snowy winter and had a blast.

The snow drifts were traced with a white pen along the squiggly Movers & Shakers die.

I know I've made his cards in the past with this sled boy~so I'm glad I could make it a little different using this fun technique from

 Now to find a place to keep this card, so I remember I made it!

Thanks for stopping by friends~

Wow! This is different. I like the warm colors against the black cardstock. Very nice.

Very clever design, Marlena, and great color choices! Your layers really enhance your gradient colors. Love this scene!
