Twinkle Christmas lights card

Twinkle Christmas lights card

Hello, friends!

Today, I have a stamped card with a twist!

I stamped this card using versamark and the October Stamp of the Month. Next, I heat embossed it with the gold embossing powder on watercolor paper. Then, I watercolored the lights with actual watercolors! To make the water colors really pop, I added some liquid glass. I love the way this looks!

Sound daunting? Don't worry. This is pretty fail proof. Just get yourselves some watercolors and some watercolor paper and get coloring ladies! It is so much fun! I actually find it really relaxing.

Melanie, I so admire how you don't hesitate to delve into all the avenues of creativity when it comes to paper crafting. Using embossing powder to create a 'wall' to hold in the watercolor paint and then adding the liquid glass...WOW...great idea! You push us into areas we might never think of.
