Watercolour decorations

There are some delightful new Christmas themed dies from Penny Black and sneak peaks have started of more to come. I love the ‘stocking stuffers‘ die set which features the stocking, trim and various bits of foliage. I used one watercolour panel to create this stocking card and the decorated bauble below uses jumbo bauble and foliage from stocking stuffers.

As you can probably tell from the mottled look of the watercolour panel I sprinkled salt over a wet panel coloured with distress inks. When you sprinkle salt over a wet panel you can achieve different results depending on how coarse the salt is.

The trimmings for both the bauble and the stocking were cut from shimmer cardstock in silver and quartz. The stamped message on the bauble is from the PB shine God’s glory set using versafine clair paradise ink.

The card bases and embossed panels are Neenah solar white cardstock embossed with TE sheet music and Spellbinders plaid company. All the links are below.

Today’s cards are similar to the cards we will be making in my October Collage Christmas card workshops in Ottawa. Click over to the Classes page to learn more and register.

    What a fun way to use your watercolor. I believe this is salted and love the way it makes that stocking look fuzzy. The ornament topped with greens looks terrific too.

    Love the salted watercolour panel you created Heather. Love both of the designs but I think the bauble is just perfection.

    I love the look of the watercoloured pieces you have used with the added salt which gives a really pretty mottled finish Heather and the added embellishments work beautifully, also the two different dry embossed backgrounds which look so pretty just left white. x
