Beautiful Blizzard – Day 3

For this Beautiful Blizzard card, I CASE’d the catalog.  Why re-invent the wheel when there are so many amazing cards already in the catalog?  I finally broke into my Brusho watercolor crystals and had some fun making this card.  I wet the watercolor paper, tapped out some of the crystals, and sprayed it with more water.  I think it looks beautiful, I need to use my Brusho more.  To be honest, the only thing keeping me from using it was trying to find some really cute push pins for it.  Oh well, I’ll just use the boring ones I have and keep looking for something really cute.  I also used the new shimmer paint on the snowflakes, I think they look pearlized when you use the frost white.

If you haven’t used Brusho before, you don’t want to actually open the bottles that the crystals come in you just want to put a little hole in the top to shake the crystals out through.
