Over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown there is a technique challenge this week: watercolouring. So here is my watercolour Christmas card…
I started with a Forever Friends Christmas stamp with a little bear decorating the Christmas tree – so cute! I stamped this in graphite black using a Brilliance Dew Drop Pigment Ink Pad. After waiting for this to dry I used watercolour pencils and a paintbrush and water to colour the image.
I had some really tiny star gems which I never thought I would use, but they were the perfect size for the stars on the tree. I added round gems from the same set to the corner on the card the image is stamped on and then mounted this on striped paper from a Me To You set.
Finally I stamped the sentiment using another brilliance dew drop ink pad in pearlescent ivy and added the same small round gems in the corners to match the rest of the card.
I will also be entering this card into the ‘anything goes’ challenge over at Through The Craft Room Door.
