I was playing around with distress inks for the first 3 cards pictured; I still wanna do a purple version too! All 3 cards feature three shades of the chosen color. After I applied the colors, I used the darkest shade to splatter drops all over the pieces. Then after thoroughly drying that process, I strategically sprayed/splattered water on them. After another drying, I sprayed them with homemade shimmer spray in metallic pearl white. I had lotsa fun during this process, and wore LOTSA ink on my hands!
The final card features another pre-colored image from the Winter Fairy Wee Stamps topper set. Who can resist a bunny on a sled with gifts?? For something different, I put matted dp in 2 corners, and then repeatedly stamped the sentiment and a couple of snowflake images in the leftover white space. Not quite as nice as Jennifer McGuire does it, but it'll do. To match the sparkle on some of the dp stripes, I added clear Wink of Stella to parts of the image as well. Three small blings in the same corners, and this was done.
