I always find it challenging to make a card with Silver and/or Gold for some reason, but I love The Paper Players Design Team and strive to participate in their challenge each week. This is my third silver/gold card I made this week, and one that I finally feel worthy of submitting for the challenge.
I was excited to try true watercoloring on this card with brushes and watercolors. (Well – at least my first stab at using paint and brushes to create a rather obscure, abstract background – gotta start somewhere!)
I used my little starter watercolor set, which is Sakura’s Koi Water Colors Pocket Field Sketch Box to create my background on SU watercolor paper and then heat embossed silver snowflakes and the Merry Christmas sentiment from the SU Endless Wishes stamp set. I added a couple silver sequins and framed it in glittery silver paper. I then dabbed some white “snow” with SU’s Gorgeous Grunge stamp and added a piece of silver and white ribbon tied into a bow to the top.
I continued the theme on the inside with more silver embossing from SU Endless Wishes.
Another Christmas card done and ready to save to send to someone special on my list.
Cheers & Hugs,
