Merry Christmas card by Olga

by Olga

Hello everyone! Olga Moss here with some Christmas inspiration. Christmas is almost on the threshold, and therefore we are all in the midst of preparations for the holidays. But don’t forget about to review the past year, too. Have you been able to accomplish everything planned? One of the most important points of my cardmaking life was – to start actively using forgotten watercolors. And I succeeded! I’m pleased with myself. So today I have this Christmas card with a magnificent bouquet of poinsettias!

For this cars I used our POINSETTIA BORDER stamp set with POINSETTIA BORDER DIES. I started by ink blending Seedless Preserves Distress ink in the upper left corner and the lower right corner. Then, I stamped the large flower image from the set onto watercolor paper and coloured it using Kuretake watercolor paint.

Once I finished my watercolouring each piece,  I let it air dry and die cut it out once it was completely dry.

I set the flowers aside while I worked on the background. I stamped the sentiment using Archival Jet Black Ink. Next, I added lots of splatters with white gouache onto both, my background and the flowers.

I wanted to add texture to the background. For that I used CONFETTI STENCIL with Nuvo Glimmer Paste. This game not only nice texture, but also fun sparkles.

I hope you enjoyed the inspiration I had for you today. Thank you for stopping by!
