The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a Christmas card that is simple to make and easily reproduced.
I started off with a piece of watercolor paper that was 5-1/4" x 8", and using my MISTI, I positioned my large Brush Poinsettia stamp in the middle and inked it up with Barn Door Distress ink, then misted and stamped.
Once that was stamped, I added some brushed and splattered gold watercolor paint (Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors) - these are gorgeous metallic watercolors that were released at CHA... the demonstrator told us to be sure to wet and work them quite a bit before painting to really get the pigment moving, and that was great advice. I used the Lyra Gold for this project. Such a pretty little full pan set.
I cut the panel right in half, then added the stamped sentiment on both cards with the MISTI...
The sentiment is HERE.
I love being able to make 2 cards with one background!
