Merry Christmas!

Hello! 
It’s almost time for Christmas!!
Today, I’ve made three Christmas cards using Craftangles liquid watercolours, stamps and stencils.
I also have start to finish videos for the same!

For the first card, I used the bauble stamps from the Craftangles ‘Christmas Ornaments’ stamp set.
I stamped them with Antique Linen distress ink and tried some no line watercolouring.
To create the background, I used the Christmas ornaments stencil and Tim Holtz distress inks. I darkened the edges to create a ‘glow’ in the centre. I love this technique as it creates a spotlight on the focal image. I’ve done this for all the cards.
I used some gold mirror card stock to cut out the blows and string and finished the card with a simple sentiment from the Craftangles ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’ stamp set.

 For the second card, I stamped the beautiful focal image from the Holly Jolly stamp set and used the Craftangles liquid watercolours to try some no line watercoloring. 
Once coloured, I fussy cut the image and used 3D foam tape to adhere it to a stencilled background. Stencil used is the brand new ‘Diagonal plaid’ stencil from Craftangles. 
I used the same sentiment on all three cards, as I was feeling lazy to pick out another one!


For the last card, I watercolored and fussy cut the cute Santa from

I then made the background using the Craftangles ‘Bricks’ stencil.
Here too I darkened the edges to create a ‘glow’.
I added flecks of white paint to finish the card.
I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I enjoyed making them.
