Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #397

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! Our challenge is

This card was actually my Christmas card this past holiday season.

I signed up for the Simply Watercolor Christmas class through Online Card Classes and my card was a combination using some of the ideas shared during the class. On some watercolor paper, I used a turquoise color from Michael's Artist's Loft Watercolor paints to make a large "blob" shape, with more color on the edges and less towards the middle. Once dry, I added the black "ground" with Cotman Water Colours Lamp Black. When that was dry, I splattered some watered down White Gouache and some Perfect Pearls for a bit of shimmer. I used Tombow's Dual Brush Pen Art Marker - Lamp Black to "scribble" trees. I used Yasutomo Pearlescent Watercolor Set to paint the word "joy". I stamped "to the world" using Simon Says STAMP CZ Designs' Chunky Christmas stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink. I trimmed the watercolor to A2 size and adhered it to a A2 card base.

I made 30 of these cards and they all are a bit different from each other - variations on a theme. 

We'd love for you to join us for our Christmas challenge.
