Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a Christmas card that I made for a couple of challenges. I LOVE this beautiful Penny Black stamp called Red Star. Not only does it have the beautiful poinsettia, but it also comes with the sentiment.
I used my SU! markers to colour onto my stamp, misted with a bit of water, and then stamped onto mixed media paper. Because this paper doesn't absorb as quickly as watercolour paper, it gave me lots of time to use a water brush to move some of the ink around.
I inked my sentiment stamp and then used my water brush to just touch it likely in a few places before stamping. I was hoping it would give it a bit of a watercolour look to match the image ... and I think it worked. I'm happy with how it came out.
I'm entering this into Merry Monday Challenge #169 - use light green, dark green and red.
And I'm entering this into ATS&M #158 - Holidays.
Thanks to everyone that was concerned about my hubby. He is feeling much better. And our air conditioning is installed and working ... what a relief. ;)
Thanks for coming by for a visit ... and welcome to my new followers! Glad you could join me!
