#705 – Merry Christmas (2)

Hello! And welcome! 🙂 I am posting here the second of the two cards I made using the Stamplorations Christmas Flower stamp, which is a very pretty image of a poinsettia. (Scroll down to see the first version!)

On this card, too, I did some watercoloring using Zig Brush pens, just with different colors. Also, I replaced the heat embossing with stamping.

Merry Christmas

I stamped the image twice on a watercolor panel using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then used my Zig Brush pens for coloring. I went with light pinks and green-grey colors this time, as opposed to the rich reds and greens from last time. I love how varied the effect is! 🙂

Merry Christmas

Once done, I added a few splatters of green-brown Camel drawing ink. I then die cut the sentiment – from Winnie & Walter In a Word: Merry die set – from the panel. I also stamped the ‘Christmas’ from Neat & Tangled Merry Beary stamp set. Then I adhered the panel directly on black cardstock. I stacked the die cut sentiment a few times with a few more die cuts, then mounted it a bit off the negative, to show off the black cardstock underneath (also gives a shadow effect).

Merry Christmas
