Pretty Poinsettia

It's Christmas Eve, so to my second card to share.

I've stamped it 3 times down the edge of a DL card, then coloured them with the water colour brush pens. The sentiment is also a stencil. I'm quite new to watercolouring so I was really pleased with the outcome of this card.

Oh Christmas Tree

With only a couple of days left to the big day I thought I would share a last couple of Christmas cards.

This is the first.

Thi is made using a sweet Poppy Stencil called Fir tree.

I used the white paste through the stencil and let it dry over night. Then coloured over the paste with the Sweet Poppy water colour brush pens. I then added some snow paste on the ends of the tree. A little white ink spattered to look like snow. The star is hand drawn with the white pen and a die cut joy.
One if my favourite cards this Christmas I think.
