WT690 = It's All in the (White) Detail - add white details to your card
My card has white Frantage chunky embossing powder and white gel pen.
I stamped the robin in Versafine brown ink and heat embossed on a heavily textured watercolour paper. I then watercoloured it with Gansai Tambi paints and fussy cut it. I like the way the texture of the watercolour paper adds extra interest.
I sponged a background piece with two shades of blue Distress ink. I trimmed it down to the square size I wanted and put it in the MISTI. I inked up an evergreen bough stamp with two shades of green Distress inks, spritzed lightly with water and stamped. I added some white gel pen to the evergreen bough for snow, and sprinkled and heat embossed chunky white Frantage for falling snow.
I popped the panel up on my card base with fun foam, added a white die cut sentiment, and glued the bird's feet to the branch and popped his body up with foam tape.

What an incredible card. Yes, the texture of the water color paper does add wonderful texture to the bird. He looks more feathery. The bird is gorgeous with your coloring, but oh, my, that sky is fabulous! Put all of these things together and it is a work of art!
