Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is written by the amazing Eva Doblias. She shows us how easy it is to use Twinkling H2O’s. She couldn’t create a video, so I shot one showing how to use the paints to create a watercolor wash background.

I started by stamping snowflakes from Verve’s Glad Tidings in VersaMark ink on a 3″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock.  They were embossed with white embossing powder before I used blue and purple Twinkling H2O’s for the waterwash. Once the paper dried, I stitched the edges of that layer.

A piece of white cardstock was cut with the Vintage Oval Frame die and the stamp with the same name was stamped over it with Starlite Black Brilliance Ink. A sentiment from Glad Tidings was stamped in the center.

Silver glimmer paper was cut and embossed with the two smallest dies from Spellbinders Create-A-Flake Four, layered on top of each other and connected with a Recollections brad (Michaels). The snowflake was adhered to the right hand side of the sentiment layer. Rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestone package were added underneath the sentiment. The sentiment layer was adhered to the lower left of the background layer before the background was adhered to the card base. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finishes off the card.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
