Christmas Card

Stamp: Penny Black 'The Wonder'
tools: watercolour, Christmas tree border punch, MS Scandinavian Snowflake chain punch, bling

Stamped the hedgehog image and coloured with watercolour. Fussy cut out the image, adhered with foam tape. I punch out some Xmas trees from snippet of white card stock using a border punch and added to the background to create the winter scenery. The aqua snowflake was snippet from the snowflake chain punch added along the white snowflake chain for contrast.

Be Strong

Stamp: Magnolia 'Mini VikingTilda'
Sentiment : Unity Stamp 'Empowered Word'
Tools: Martha Stewart Frond punch, leaf punch, small flower punch, I Am Roses rose bud, doily, watercolour, Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad

Played with watercolour again. This time, using pink, my favourite colour! The doily was pre-dyed in pink colour too by misting. After I coloured the background of watercolour paper with watercolour, I left it to dry before I stamped the image on another piece of watercolour card stock and use Kuretake aqua brush to colour it. Fussy cut out the stamped image and adhere everything onto the tag followed by stamping the sentiment to finish it off. The white leaves were punched out from snippet of leftover watercolour card stock that I used to stamp the image.

Let Your Dreams Take Flight Bookmark

Stamp: Magnolia Edwin
tools: watercolour, EK Success scallop circle and circle punch, Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad, Kuretake aqua brush

Trying my hand on watercolouring but seen here, I am still struggling with it. Both the background and the stamped image were coloured using watercolour. Normally, I would use either watercolour pencil or Copic to colour the stamped image. Found the sentiment which was bought locally sometime ago and kept in cupboard, matches the stamp flight theme.
