I used the versatile Simon Says Stamp Festive Trees stamp set and a rainbow of lush Mijello Mission Gold watercolors to create this wash of color over white-embossed line art stamp images.
You will need the following, all available at Simon Says Stamp:
Using a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 sheet of the watercolor paper in “portrait” orientation, stamp various tree images from the Festive Trees stamp set in a circle, using Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and emboss with Ranger Fine Detail white embossing powder.
Mist your Mijello watercolors and then the paper three times with water.
Apply a little of each color into the water already on the paper, blending abject colors to create a wash effect.
Dry with the Heat It Tool
Stamp “Season’s Greetings” sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black into the center.
Embellish with your favorite clear jewels.
Trim the watercolor card front to 4 x 5 1/4”.
Mount with foam tape onto a card base.
