Good morning!


Today I’m sharing my card for Christmas in July #4, the prompt was watercoloring. What messy fun! This was my first experience using watercolor paper…1st attempt went in the trash LOL! The second time I was a little more light handed with the water brush and ink, especially around the edges where I used a darker green.


I’d also like to share this card with the Christmas in July challenge at Simply Create Too.


2014 Card 101 - SU Mosaic Madness Christmas Messages CIJ 4 Watercolor


I watercolored the green panel with Pear Pizazz and Garden Green inks onto watercolor paper. After it dried, I mounted it to a Cherry Cobbler panel and then on to a Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White cardstock base. I then stamped the sentiment from Christmas Messages.  I stamped the Mosaic Madness stamp with Cherry Cobbler ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punched them out using the Mosaic punch.  I finished the card off with a few basic rhinestones. Oh and the “strings” were drawn in using a journaling pen.


Thanks for visiting today!
