Stamped and Watercolored Background

November 30, 2017

Hello!  It's Lisa back today from Lisa's Creative Niche, and today's card features a fun stamped background created with the Reindeer and a Tree Stamp Set...


To create my card I started by stamping the tree in the center of my Bristol Cardstock and then stamped all of the decorations around it with a Versafine Ink.  I then used a mix of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Makers to color the images in, as well as a brush with water to pull the colors out.  Remember when working with watercolors to only work on one area at a time, so that your colors won't blend together.  Once the panel was dry I stamped and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, and adhered it with foam adhesive.


I also went back and added a touch of shine to my tree with a Clear Spectrum Noir Pen, because who doesn't love shine during the holidays?!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
Lisa

First I coloured the background with some distress ink "Festive berries" and added some "Black soot" around the edges. I spritzed it with water for a...
