Another four watercolour panels made into Christmas cards for you to look at. All quick and easy from my panel collection. This first one was a loose watercolour using Tim Holtz Distress Ink blue and lots of water on the panel. Added the paint to a piece of acetate and sprayed with water then just squished onto the watercolour paper. Kept adding bits here and there till I was happy. Drying in-between additions.
I have used a new stamp from Stamplorations (I absolutely love this set)- comes in a set of 3 reindeer, a set of antlers and a few sentiments and embosses beautifully. Silver embossed on this piece of watercolour paper.
I then used the small Pretty Pink Posh frame die to cut a frame around the reindeer
image but then places the piece back together again and added to a layer of yellow fun foam
to lift slight from the front of the card.
Easy pretty looking card.
This next card was done with a mix of very pale pink and flesh colour zigs and water .
It is a very soft looking card and looks really pretty. I ended up adding a very light amount of gold paint that I added lots of water to before adding to the card here and there just to add some contrast.
I have heat embossed with gold embossing powder and the stamp set is from Mama Elephant
and comes with lots of wonderful little sentiments to add to the inside of the card that are relevant to the sentiment for the front.
I love the two doves that come with this stamp set as well and they are separate so you can decide where you want them placed. This time I have used the large rectangle frame die cut from Pretty Pink Posh (I have added the link to the blog today as the shop is closed for the holidays and there is no link at this time)
Here is I have used a Penny Black Stamp again (love this one) from a set
Isn't this fabulous.
Anyway as you can see here this is the acrylic block technique again using Zig inks pink, orange and yellow and a spray of water. I Added colour twice to the block and then squirted water onto the paper to move the colour around and dried as I worked to get a nice controlled look.
Gold heat embossed, small rectangle die Frame then put back together. Added a layer of gold glitter paper to a layer of pink fun foam and attached to the card front at an angle then attached the watercoloured panel at a different angle.
This last watercolour panel is Distress Ink Oxides, my favourites at this time. I do love the colours and the texture and feel of chalkiness and look of the colours together when flicked, sprayed with water, dried, wet again, colours added, cross coloured just looks wonderful.
Gold heat embossed. Looks really wonderful but not showing up so well here in the photo.
Die cut (sorry cant think of die used at this time)
Added flat to card base. Very bright, flat easy to post, easy to put together.
Thank you so much for coming to have a look and I hope you come again soon.
