You know, I don't often watercolor as I don't think I'm good enough at it but today I dug out my inks and aqua painter and went to work. Of course, having a new stamp set to play with was an added incentive. It's called Christmas Magic and is a new set that will be available in the new Holiday Catalog. I combined two of the stamps in the set to make it look like one. Actually the snowman and the North Pole are separate stamps. I haven't made a Christmas card in quite some time so this was a nice change from all the flowers I've been making.
Stamp Set: Christmas Magic; Inks: Basic Gray, Garden Green, Jet Black StazOn, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango; Cardstock: Naturals White (retired), Real Red, Watercolor Paper; Other: Rose Garden Thinlits Dies, Silver Metallic Thread, Aqua Painter
My card was made and entered in two challenges. The "anything goes" challenge at Stampin' Royalty and the water-coloring challenge at Just Us Girls. For the details for each challenge, click the images below.
Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
I love that soft, swirly watercolor background and your darling images! The silver thread looped behind the sentiment panel looks great. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sue! I don't do much water-coloring but this was fun to make. It has inspired me to incorporate more water-coloring into my projects.Delete
Great card, Marsha. You've used that new stamp set beautifully.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Heidi! It's a CASE of the card on page 22 of the Holiday Catalog. I'm going to enjoy this stamp set.Delete
