Snowy Sky Background Tutorial using Funky Fossil "Christmas Characters" stamp set

I have a couple of friends who are in thier early stages of card making.  In these troubled times, it's not so easy to share techniques with them, so I am making a few little videos that they can try at their leisure when the mood takes them.  

I know from experience, that sometimes with long video tutorials you can switch off.  For that reason, I have split the technique into two separate videos.  The first is how to create the backgound, shading Distress Oxide Inks, splattering water and paint to create a snowy/stary scene.  Here is the link for that video.  

This is a list of the items needed for the background video

A card tag (mine measured 6cm x 12cm Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Ink Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Ink Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink A white Posca Pen (or white acrylic paint) A Fan shaped paint brush 
A small jar of water

In the second video, I concentrate on creating an image using the background in the earlier video.  I have used the Funky Fossil "Christmas Characters" stamp set, stamped in Versafnie Clair "Nocturne" ink and coloured with Posca Pens and Distress Oxide inks. 
Here's the link for the second video.

Here's a list of the items needed for decorating the snowman tag:
