First up I just had to do a easy and fun watercolor background!
I inked up a acrylic block with Sea Glass, Turquoise Sea & Tranquil Teal. Lightly misted the paper with water, then misted the inks up turned block over and sat it down on the paper. Let it sit there for a minute before removing. Let it dry completely then used Turquoise Sea to make splatters & my Misti to stamp the Greeting and the snowflakes! 
Here is what I used to make this card!

Those cups with the snowflakes made me think of a nice winter morning having a big cup of coffee or cocoa!

Premium Dye Ink - Tranquil Teal, Sea Glass, Turquoise Sea, Coral Reef
Sheer Satin Fancy Ribbon - White and Gold 
Connect Glue
also Foam Squares


I wanted to do a little Oxide ink on one so I masked off a piece of White Layering Weight Card Stock and sponged on Peacock Feathers Oxide Ink then using my Misti I stamped the images & greeting in Amalgam Ink. Then I splattered on some water and used a white gel pen to add a little snow to the trees!
