Holiday Card Series - Merry Christmas

Hello everyone,

I'm back with more cards for my Holiday Card Series.

I have a set of cards that a coworker ordered and these were fun and easy to make.  

I started out with Canson XL watercolour paper and cut out A2 sized panels.  I used my Koi watercolours and unfortunately they don't have names. 

I added the colour the each panel with water and then heat set them between layers.  I added a little at a time to get the depth of the hard and soft lines.  Once they dried I added some splatter with some black paint from the same palette.  

I took the Merry Christmas sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp and I die cut it four times out of metallic paper that I found at my local dollar store.  I adhered them to the watercolour panels and then added those to regular card stock card bases. 

For these cards I pulled out my distress stains in Barn Door and Tattered Rose and Faded Jeans and Tumbled Glass and just stamped them all over the paper and the sprits them with my Distress sprayer.
After they dried I added some gold and silver splatter with the same colour distress inks.

I then cut out more of the Merry Christmas sentiments from the same paper as the ones above and adhered them to the card with Tombow Mono.  Once that was all done I added the panels to regular card stock card bases and called them done.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
