The die is Cottage Cutz Deer Snowflake Scene. I created the inky background with Distress Oxides on photo paper. I layered several blues using the watercolour ink-smooshing technique and then dried in between each colour. It's best to work from lightest colour to darkest, but I didn't. When finished, it had a dull appearance but when wiped with a baby wipe, it became vibrant like you see here. I first saw this technique on a video here. It's one of my favourite techniques!
I trimmed the inky background to be slighly larger than the die-cut scene. I stamped the Stampin' Up Peaceful Wishes sentiment in Memento Paris Dusk and layered the scene onto a snowflake embossed panel (Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry).
