Snow Seeds

This is a little seed packet and as soon as I saw the template in this month's Stamping & Papercraft mag I thought Crystal Snowlady would be perfect! As I have said before, its summer this time of year for us so I just think it would be so amazing if you could actually plant snow seeds and have them grow! This little packet would be good for a gift certificate or some little goodies... makes a change from a regular Christmas card anyway! I am so chuffed with it... I might even keep it for myself!
I spent HOURS watercolouring her. All up it was about three hours and then I put Twinkling H2O's on her. If you haven't tried these on your watercolouring... they look GREAT! In person they are more noticeable... they are a little bit hard to capture on camera but you get the idea (you can see it bigger if you click on the picture).
