This challenge called for creating a Christmas card using water colors and I couldn't be happier. Water coloring is my favorite medium to color my images, using my SU markers and an aqua painter. This markers are just so perfect for this, they blend and shade your images beautifully.
This image is from Flourishes, a company that sadly closed it's doors a couple of years ago, but I'm fortunate enough to have a good stash of this beautiful images, and this one is no exception. The music sheet behind this flowers, the sprigs of pine and the bells look vintage to me, I added a piece of the brand new SU Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack , to keep that vintage feel of the design
Here is a close up of this lovely paper.
I colored this image with my SU markers in Cherry Cobbler, More Mustard, So Saffron, River Rock, Old Olive and Garden Green. I added some Wink of Stella shimmer to the bells, I hope you can see it, sometimes it's difficult to photograph.The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Hand Penned Holidays", the font on this set is just so beautiful, I wish my hand writing look like that, I heat embossed it in gold on a piece of Vellum and attached it to the panel with 4 gold brads.
I hope you like this card, please leave me your comments and, if you have any questions, I'm here to help.
