Bloggers Challenge Week 24-Old World Watercolour


The Challenge for this week was to complete a card using watercolour techniques. Wanting to kill two birds with one stone, I also used this card for a SCS Challenge which was to create an Artists Trading Card and then incorporate it into a larger card.

I used This Method to watercolour my Shabby Santa.

Inspired by the wonderful watercolours of fellow Bloggers Challenge and Hanna Stamps design team member Anna Wight I have tried to adopt a similar style when watercolouring with markers and reinkers!!

The ATC was created with the Naughty but Nice Stamp as well as SO Many Sayings. I made a small tag with the Word window punch, layering the Olive onto the Burgundy and trimming a small border. Liquid Applique creates an illusion of fluffy snowflakes!

Layers of Imaginsce DP, Burgundy and Olive Cardstock, along with some coordinating Ribbon and a matching prima complete this Jolly old elf!!!!
