Shimmery Christmas Card

Hello! It's Lauren here today sharing this super shimmery Christmas card using the Poinsettia and Pinecones stamp set illustrated by Kelly Taylor.

I stamped the single poinsettia image 3 times and 5 leaf images onto watercolor paper. I colored them using my watercolor pencils. When the images were dry, I went over each petal and leaf with a light swipe of gorgeous, shimmery, Iuile Watercolors. I fussy cut them out once they were completely dry.

While my poinsettias and leaves were drying, I created a silvery, watercolor background on watercolor paper. I brushed water onto my paper where I wanted the watercolor to be, then I started adding the silver color (Prism) and allowed it to flow ad spread out on the wet area of the paper. Once I was happy with the amount of color coverage, I set it aside to dry.

Then I splattered the panel with the same Prism ink and let it dry. I also painted around the edges of a white top folding A2 sized card base.

I then created my sentiment by stamping the words Merry Christmas in black ink onto watercolor paper that I had already colored with the Prism watercolor. I then die cut my words out using the Poinsettia coordinating die set.

Once all my card elements were dry, I adhered them onto my water-colored panel. Then I adhered that onto my card base.

Christmas is the best time of year for all kinds of shimmer and shine and this card is overflowing with it! Below are links to products I used to create my card. Thanks so much for visiting!
