I’m still playing around to see what I will use for my personal Christmas card. Today I used the Christmas Pines stamp set and did a bit of watercoloring…I like it!
The pine boughs were stamped on watercolor paper in Garden Green and Old Olive inks. The tiny berries were then stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I took my Aqua Pen and just started brushing over the stamped images with a bit of water until it was blended!
Pretty Pointer: Whenever you want something to stand out, layer it with a contrasting or brighter color. In this case I wanted my watercolored panel to stand out, so I put a narrow layer of Cherry Cobbler card stock behind it.
I used the softly falling embossing folder on the background panel of Blushing Bride card stock. It really carries out the little berry theme 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today! I’m getting ready to have my monthly card classes this weekend and our focus is Holiday Tags, so be watching for some pretty tags on the blog!!
