Merry Christmas

Is there anything better than watercolored poinsettias? Very few! They are just a prominent image that reminds me of Christmas. This is a brand new stamp set from Technique Tuesday.
I am not even going to lie. It took a few days to color in this panel. I wanted each color to be completely dry before moving on to the next.  This isn't the kind of card where I wanted the colors to blend into each other. So I had to practice patience and take my time.

It is really hard to photograph subtle sparkle.  The gold was watercolored with a gold sparkly Gansai gold, which is so glittery in person, it just doesn't show up on camera. However, the Wink Of Stella Clear glitter pen, kind of shows up along the border of the poinsettia blooms.

This card was very intensive to color, but it was so relaxing! I love how it turned out!
The front panel in Fabriano cold pressed watercolor paper, then the poinsettia was stamped multiple times using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  The images were colored in using Daniel Smith watercolor paint. The sentiment was stamped using white pigment ink, then heat set with clear embossing powder and adhered using foam adhesive.

Head on over to the Technique Tuesday blog to see more of the November release of stamps and dies!
