Watercolour Christmas Cards

Hi... How are you?

I saw MIM on Papertrey Ink where Betsy painted some Christmas trees and it made me want to pick up my paintbrush...

I made a few cards and thought I'd share a couple with you today. I'm not entering at PTI but I did do this one with the same technique using a fan brush

I used distress ink to paint the sky and a distress re-inker for the trees

Having die cut the reindeer I smothered it in Versamark and used the same embossing powder on it as I did the stamped image

My next card also has a painted BG...

...But covered in glittered snowflakes

I'd forgotten just how relaxing it is to play with a paintbrush and watch those colours collide

I hope to be able to get around to visiting you all soon,

Wishing you a beautiful day
