Watercolor Christmas Card
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  Today I want to share a card I colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, a waterbrush, and some Memory Box watercolor paper.

First, I stamped my holly onto watercolor paper using black Versafine ink and then allowing the ink to dry.  Next, I colored the bottom of each leaf with my darkest green pen:


Next, I blended out the dark green marker using a lighter green marker.  The nice thing about a real brush marker is that you don't have to worry about the dark paint staining your lighter marker (as you would with a Tombo or Marvy).


Finally, I dragged the light green marker out to the edges using a waterbrush:


For the berries, I added some color to he bottom of each circle before dragging the color out to the edges with my waterbrush:


Here is the close up of the finished piece popped up on the card:


The background for the card is simply the new Krotted Diamond Background die paper-pieced with some of the new Memory Box garland 6" x 6" papers.

Have a great day!






Cool, love the paper pieced background too! Great design!
