Hello everyone. Greta here with a Christmas card that won’t need extra postage. Our challenge this month is to use watercoloring on your project. I began by stamping & heat embossing the background in gold on watercolor paper. Then I used a dark red watercolor paint with a wet brush using more paint at the top & more water moving down to create an ombre look. I added a piece of vellum down the center with a stamped sentiment at the bottom. The tree was also heat embossed in gold on another piece of watercolor paper brushed with the same paint. I trimmed it very close, eliminating the stars. The dots were colored with the paint nearly full strength & I added Stickles to the stars. When everything dried I mounted it with foam tape & added gold dots at the top. Hope I’ve inspired you to join our challenge.
