Artist Trading Coins with Frosty Fairies

I made three more Artist Trading coins, for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (let it snow) and Wednesday Challenge ( all that glitters is gold) and showcasing Lawn Fawn.

So for my coins I watercolored half a sheet of watercolor paper 300grams in blue and lilac tones.
then added snow with splatters of white ink, snow effect from Viva Decor and the Simon Says Stamp falling snow stencil with the same ice effect, but as the coins are quite small I went for the lower bit on the stencil and now kinda wonder if it was worth the trouble haha...let it dry. I then diecut 2,5"circles and boy that ice effect turned out rock hard and difficult to cut, so I probably will add it last if I use more.

I then stamped the fairies from Lawn Fawn (frosty fairy friends) and used the matching dies to cut them out, I colored them with Illustrator and Copic markers. Added show  shimmer with a Nuvo glitter pen on the wings.
mounted the fairies with foamtape.
Added the sentiment with Versafine onyx black ink (same stampset) and placed the fairies. and then I added some glittery dew drops. the little tree thing is also a die from the same set. the twig with berries and I felt the only I could use to cut out a shape you'd recognize without stamping.
