Hello friends! I am here today to post a quick Christmas card I made this week.
December kind of snuck up on me and I had to get a dozen cards Christmas made and mailed in about 24 hours.
I had found some inspiration on Pinterest - check out this gorgeous Christmas Tree card from Branch Studio.
Here is one of my finished cards:
I knew that if wanted a dozen cards done as quickly as possible that painting a tree with watercolour freehand was not going to work - I'm too much of a perfectionist.
I decided to use my Mini Woodland Stencil from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous and Color Burst in Pthalo Green. I used some painters tape to tape off the stencil image that I wanted to use.
I sprinkled a little bit of the Pthalo Green powder over the image.
A couple sprays of water and those gorgeous blue/green colours just come alive!
After removing the stencil I took a fine brush and pushed the colours around until I was happy with it. I love this technique because every card turned out a bit different.
