Merry Christmas


First Christmas card for the year... I'm CASing Kimberley's card at Muse: Christmas Vision #76 and posting to CAS Watercolour - January challenge - Snowflake. Firstly I created the background panel - stamped and embossed the green branch and then a scattering of snowflakes embossed in white. Then I gave the panel a wash of blue - I used a dry baby wipe sprayed with some blue mist, I find this way gives a nice smooth coat, not too blotchy.  Then I cut some white card with a die to form my hill. I stamped and and coloured my image with Brushos and drew on a thread to hang it from the foliage.  Finally I attached a stamped sentiment.  Thanks for taking a peek.

  1. Hi Robyn. Beautiful watercoloured sky. I have never used a baby wipe with spray to create a background, but will definitely have to give it a try. It's really beautiful. Love those sweet snowflakes and the pop of colours from the Santa ornament! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! xx
