Watercolor Christmas Card

Can you all tell I’ve been having a complete blast making Christmas projects lately!  It seems everywhere I turn there is another idea for a new project – must be the Christmas sparkles inspiring me.  Today I’ve created a simple Christmas card with a water coloured background, a little stamping and a foiled Christmas sentiment.  You can grab the yummy goodies I’ve used from Lulu Art of course!  The steps are fairly simple, so let me show you how to create this pretty card.

Tape off the edges of your watercolour paper and then use masking ink to draw on some snowdrift shapes.

Use watercolours and create a wash for the snow drifts and a darker wash for the sky.

Once the background is dry, remove the masking ink and stamp some trees using watercolour paint as the ink for the stamps – let this dry thoroughly.

Add opaque molding paste through a stencil and leave to dry.

Use a Sharpie pen to splatter white paint over the sky for stars and then add a second layer of splatters using the Pearl color from the Gansai Tambi pearl paints.

Paint adhesive size over the molding paste and wait for it to become tacky, then add silver foil over the size.

Brush off any excess foil and trim and scruff up those edges with a distressing tool, before mounting onto some backing card.

Your finished card is elegant and ready to send.

I’ve also recorded every step so you can watch and create your very own Watercolour Christmas Card.
