We will be been given two words to be use each month, The first word is a colour to be used on the piece of artwork and the second is an object which has to form a part of it. January's words are aqua and snowflakes.
I mixed Bora Bora and Mermaid Fresco paints to make aqua for the background before embossing the right lower part with snowflakes. I sanded over the raised part to reveal a little of the white card underneath before stamping the sentiment and the snowflakes. I highlighted the snowflakes with a Posca white pen. The piece of ribbon is a piece I found already coloured aqua in my ribbon box - it will be replaced idc with some seam binding but I have run out and so, it seems, has every shop on the web!
