This card features the Ornamental Background stamp and Here We Come A-Caroling.
For this card I used a technique called Joseph's Coat. If you have never heard of this technique I will try to explain it to you. Start by cutting a piece of water color card stock, watercolor the panel using ink colors in rainbow order. I just did thinish stripes of each color until I filled the panel. Let dry completely or heat completely with your heat tool.
Stamp and emboss using clear embossing powder over the rainbow watercolored panel. After embossing has cooled down a bit, sponge over entire panel with black ink. The clear embossing resists the ornaments to allow the amazing rainbow colors to shine through. Awesome, right?! I haven't done this technique in ages. It is so fun!
We are also still going strong over on StampNation with WCMD 2017. Two more challenges will be posted today.
Here is a peek at my card for Alaska's challenge.

I was inspired to create a similar card using the same supplies.
The challenge was to use embossing or texture paste, whipped spackle or any product that is fluffly like snow. For the happy birthday card, I used translucent embossing paste on the panel behind the star. It was really hard to get a good picture of it.
Here is a little bit better picture.
To achieve the sparkle on the star I used the amazing Glass Bead Glitter Gel. This stuff is amazing! I applied it after I had sponged the star.
I will add this over at Seize the Birthday: No topping for me.
Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
