Art Impressions "Twinkle in a Tangle"



I just love this stamp set from Art Impressions 4665 - Twinkle in Tangle!  So fun to watercolor and then add distress glaze to the light bulbs, the earring and the glasses.  I even added Wink of Stella glitter to the blue background so this card has more shine than what you can see in this photo. Who doesn't love the mistletoe tradition?  I have hung mistletoe every December since I can remember and I used to always get my husband and sons to kiss me but these days I get my grandsons to kiss me.    Happy holidays!

Watercolor Weekend December 16, 2017



Hello Watercolor Friends,

I'm busy making and sending Christmas cards.  I made this one using the new 4961 - WC Mini Cottages Set. I used the new 4964 - WC Branches Set to make the trees.  For the pinery I used the new 4867 - Foliage Set 2 and the bushes are from 4604 - the Chest of Flowers set.  I used some Zig Wink of Stella to add glitter to the snow which doesn't photograph well but it is so pretty in person!  I hope you have tried it.  I used a Uni-ball Signo pen to add the snow to the sky and the smoke to the chimneys.  Our next Watercolor Weekend will be in January so happy holidays to you all!

Watercolor Weekend December 2, 2017









Hello Watercolor Friends,

I've made a Christmas card for this Watercolor Weekend using a cabin from the new 4962 - WC Rustic Cabins Set.  I also used the tree from the WC Tree Set - 4269 and the fence from the 4807 - Old Barn Set. I used some Zig Wink of Stella to add glitter to the snow.  I used Glossy Accents on the lights and Nuvo Crystal Drops on the trees to add sparkle.  I used a Uni-ball Signo pen to add the snow to the sky.
