I'm still in Christmas card mode so went with a favourite holly stamp. Here's the card:
I flooded the whole panel with water and dropped a pale green over the whole thing, then went back in with pale blue and a mauve-blue just on the background to give variation. I then took a fine pointed paintbrush and added dark green to all the holly leaves.
I mounted it on fun foam, framed with a pierced frame die, added red Stickles to the berries, and a small sentiment.
I'm also entering this in the Less is More "Emboss Resist" challenge.
Please come over and join us at CAS Watercolour with your creations using a resist technique with watercolour. You have until December 24th to enter. Please remember to keep to the Clean and Simple guidelines. Loll and Bonnie have tightened them up a bit, and one of the new requirements is that the cards must include white "or open" space (no pattern). I'm looking forward to seeing what you create!
