Week 6 already, for the Heart of Christmas blog hops!
This week I have used the super cute Christmas Crowd stamp set. It features one main image and four appropriate greetings. I haven't used my Aquapainter for a while so I thought this would be a great image to watercolour. I find watercolouring very relaxing and almost therapeutic, I know my classes are always quieter and relaxed when we're watercolouring.The colour scheme I used for this card is a little different to the usual bright red and greens for Christmas. For this card I chose Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow for my main colours, which I think still looks traditional but with a twist.
I added some Glimmer White and Silver snowflakes from the Christmas Layers Dies for a bit more dimension.
The second card I have to show you uses the same main image, but this time I stamped the outline in Smokey Slate and coloured very lightly with my Aquapainter. I love this effect, it's very subtle and soft. Two very different cards with the same stamp set.
All the supplies I have used for these cards are listed below, if you have any questions about my projects please contact me.
