Spritz watercolor paper with water and brush several shades of teal, blue and purple Peerless Watercolors onto the damp paper.  Air-dry it.  Press the Golden Glitz Inkpad onto an acrylic block and spritz it with water.  Press the diluted ink onto the watercolor paper.  Dry the ink.

Diecut it with two of the Pinpoint Rectangle Layers.  Ink the edges of the rectangles with Grape Jelly.  Diecut two sets of Shimmering Snowflakes from watercolor paper.  Layer them - slightly offset for dimension - and attach them to the background.
