Happy Saturday peeps!!
Time for a new Dynamic Duos Challenge.
Pretty colors right? I was determined to make another Christmas card with these colors and I wanted to use my new Stampin Up set called "Watercolor Winter". I love to watercolor so you know this set was on the top of my must get list.
The set is actually a two step stamping set, there is a separate stamp for the outline and another to "fill in". I just stamped the outline and colored it myself. I swear I used real red for my poinsettias, but because I used my aqua brush/water brush it looks like a really pale red. I keep going back in with more ink trying to darken the flower, but it never really attained pure "redness"......but hey I did use real red and there is poinsettias this color so I figure it is all good! :) And I do like the softness of the card the certainly celery looks nice with the cream card stock and the water colored flowers.
I "framed" my flowers by die cutting a couple of strips of celery card stock with one of the finishing touches edgelit. I then put the pieces through my crimper and cut small slits all along the straight edge of the strips which allowed me to curve them and glue around the circle.
The sentiment is from the "Greetings of the Seasons" stamp set.
I finished my card off with some basic pearls, some in the center of the flowers and in the corners.
I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week and
