Christmas In July

Whilst I was experimenting with the water stamping (see yesterday's post) I inked a background with the gorgeous Shaded Lilac ink and on a whim I splattered it with water instead of stamping.  Straight away it made me think of a beautiful snowy evening and so I turned the experiment into a Christmas card.
The pine tree is a Serendipity stamp and the words are from a Papermania set.  There was a little too much water in a blob at the top so I punched it out and layered it up with the background card.
I think I will have to play with this colour and Christmas again, perhaps with a masked off moon or spritzing/flicking with a watery pearl colour.

Challenges:
