Hi there! Today I’m here with a quick video showcasing how i made this wintery, shimmery sky! It’s actually quite easy to do and so unique because each time you do it, you will get different results. That is the beauty of distress inks and water! I won’t go into all the details of how I made the card because I’ve got a video that does that for you. If you’ve got any questions at all, just leave them in the comments below!!! I did want to point out the “winter” die... Isn’t that fantastic? It’s from the latest Winnie and Walter release! That release was huge. It has stamps, stencils and yes… dies… I am so excited they added stencils and dies to their line! This die is from their Big, Bold and Seasons set! In the video, I used distress ink minis… I still have the full size pads, but I also have all of the minis too, They are so cute! They are available at several places. All supplies I used are linked to multiple sources at the end of the post. Here’s a close up of the background:
You can watch the video right here or over on my youtube channel in HD. And please subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already! I’d love to see you over there too!

Less is definitely more with the Perfect Pearls mist… I like your flicking technique; gives the right amount of shimmer without overwhelming the watercolor background (I wasted a few pieces of WC paper this week, spraying directly!). Thanks also for the reminder about the great effects you can get applying the ink to the block vs to the paper. Such a pretty card!
Your card is lovely Laurel and what a great background technique! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Gorgeous background, Laurel!
