Welcome to a wonderful new week everyone! I hope you had a fabulous weekend. Today I’m sharing a super shiny, full of wonderful Christmas card featuring a new stamp from Trinity Stamps. I had fun working out of my comfort zone watercoloring with metallic watercolors. I hope you like it.
I took a panel and blended weathered wood and stormy sky distress oxides on it and spritzed it with water. I let it dry and then heat embossed the new Jingle All the Way stamp with silver embossing powder. Then I took out my Kuretake Starry Colors watercolor palette and painted it. I think I used all of the colors in that set. Once it was dry, I trimmed the panel down to 3×4.25 and popped it up on a white panel that measures 3.5×4.5.
Last, I ran a blue panel through my die cut machine with the starry skies coverplate. I didn’t like how flat it looked against the ink blending so I inked up the edges with a darker blue ink to just a bit of depth. I adhered the panel to a white card base and popped the white panel up with foam tape.
I absolutely love this new stamp. It’s so fun and has so many coloring possibilities. This card is so shiny and eye catching and it was a blast to sit and watercolor with these metallics. It’s a fabulous palette to have.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
