Watercolor Christmas Sneak Peek

The holidays are just around the corner. Non traditional colors for Christmas cards are a favorite of mine.  I used the stamp set Wonderful Year from the Holiday Catalog available September 1. The bold greetings with the hand lettered brush script look are beautiful!  Using Pool Party paired with Silver Foil gave it the Wintry feel I was going for.

I used my Aqua Painter and the Pool Party Reinker to paint the background onto Watercolor Paper The snowflakes are from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set, stamped in Pool Party Classic Ink.  I masked the watercolor and stamped the snowflakes.  The greeting is stamped over the watercolor in Versamark and heat embossed with Whisper White Stampin' Emboss Powder

I added a few embellishments -- Rhinestone JewelsSilver Metallic Thread and a strip of washi tape from the Affectionately Yours collection.

Tip:  Cut a shape or 2 out of the center of the Silver Foil Sheet.  It keeps the card from being too heavy and makes this paper go further.

Thanks for looking!
