Watercolor Pencil Winter Scene card

Hello there!  It's been a few days since I've updated my blog....I had some minor surgery on Wednesday and wasn't really feeling like being crafty, but today I am feeling much better and missed playing with my stuff!  :)

 I chose to use watercolor pencils.  I love how this card turned out....very pretty and Christmasy!  :)

The stamp is an old one from Northwood stamps, and I stamped it on watercolor paper and clear embossed.  That makes it easier for me to control the watercolor.  

I added some clear stickles to the ground to make it look more like snow.  I used sizzix dies to die cut the image and mat piece, then mounted the whole thing on red.  

Here's a close up of the watercoloring:

I mounted everything onto a black notecard and stamped a sentiment and embossed with white embossing powder. 

I am happy with how this turned out and be sure to stop by and visit again!  

Have a good night!  :)

  6. Kathryn, thanks for linking up your card to the challenge over at YNS! This scene imitates those crisp sunny days in the winter perfectly.

    I hope you're well rested and healed up from your surgery.

  7. What a great way to pull in all the colors from the latest YNS challenge. Embossing to control the water coloring - why didn't I think of that??!!!
