Crazy Crafters Blog Hop | Special Guest Stesha Bloodhart

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest Stesha Blookhart from the River Falls, Wisconsin. You can view her wonderful creations at her blog, Stampin Hoot

I decided on the below project as love the quick and easy watercolour background technique - I tend to "overthink" when I am using an aqua painter to create a background, but this technique works for me even though I am not in total control hahaha! I think it's because you get you achieve a beautifully random background so quickly - no time to think about it!

I used a combination of Bermuda Bay and Marina Mist on Shimmery White cardstock using a small piece of Window Sheet, and in the process noticed that when the colours blended there was a hint of purple! So on some scrap I played a bit more and added some perfect Plum - I used this to die cut the swirls and snowflakes. 

I'm in love with the Snowflake Sentiments Bundle, the font is just gorgeous, and those swirls, love the swirls!  The sentiment is white heat embossed, looks fab with the Shimmery White cardstock.  All that was left to do was lay out the swirls and snowflakes, and add a finishing touch of iridescent sequins - I love these! 3 different sizes and a variety of colours.

Next was to create the little tag for my box of sweets, I added layers of Perfect Plum and Bermuda bay to the tag to match the card, then decorated with more die cuts. Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are perfect for small gifts, they are so easy to make. Silver Metallic Edge ribbon was a great accompaniment for this project, and I must say I am rather proud of my bow, maybe I am overcoming my bow fear hahaha! I attached the mini tag using Silver Thread.
