I used the create a paint pearl shade, sky re-inker and cut a 2 inch snowflake out from the cricuit to change up this technique. The book uses the re-inker with milepost shapes.

Details of technique and your variation:

I cut a 2 inch snowflake from the new art philosophy cricuit cartridge and placed it in the space I wanted on my colonial white cardstock. I then used a small jar and mixed create a shade pearl paint with sky re-inker to my desired shade. Then I used a sponge dauber to dip in the color mixture.  I placed the snowflake on the colonial white cardstock and then painted over the entire piece of colonial white. I then picked up the snowflake and tada!
