Welcome to day 5 of our 5 for 5 Christmas Blog Event! Today our theme is TREE! Each day our 5 designers will share a Christmas inspired project using that days' theme. Some of us are offering prizes (like me!) so be sure to comment on each blog for a chance to win! All the links are listed at the bottom of this post.
I had fun creating this watercolory Christmas tree card. The Christmas Tree of Hope, Joy, Love stamp by Unity is so detailed and beautiful, the card doesn't need much else. I colored the stamp using a little technique I showcase in my video below, called "controlled color bleeding".
The ink colors I used for the stamp are Distress Inks in Crushed Olive, Lucky Clover, and Mowed Lawn. Then I dragged out the ink with a water brush for my 'controlled color bleed'. Then I restamped the image to emboss it in a glittery black embossing powder.
Now it's time for PRIZES! I have a great prize rounded up this time. It includes a ton of Grumbacher art supplies, colored pencils, Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Pastels, plus two NEW Lawn Fawn stamps! All you have to do is leave a comment each day to enter!
*I will announce a winner the evening of December 13th!*
Now it's time to visit the other designers! Have fun!
