Hello everyone, Today I’m sharing Christmas cards ideas using beautiful products by Simon Says Stamp.
I used: Outline Snowflake BackgroundStamp which is simply spectacular and I also used Picture Book Santa, Picture Book Snowman Picture Book Deer wafer dies. Those are fantastic, and I die cut them out of watercolour paper to add washes of colour and give them an extra special look.
The sentiments are for a very comprehensive stamp set called Tiny Word Christmaswith over 40 individual stamps.
To add colours to the die cuts I used Zigs ( Kuretake Clean Colour Real Brush watercolour markers) and a water brush.
What I do is apply the ink of the marker directly on the edges of the die cuts and with the water brush, I spread the colour towards the centre of the die cut.
I apply all the colours I want to blend. eg. red, brown, grey and then I blend them with the water brushes.
I have a video on my Youtube Channel here to show the colouring process on die cuts in case you want to have a look.
To add colour to the backgrounds I used Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens.
I heat embossed the image from Outline Snowflake Background Stamp in 3 different watercolor panels using gold, clear and silver embossing powders. Then I apply the ink of the Aqua Flow Pens randomly over the paper and then I sprayed it with water to blend and mix the colours.. this was very easy and I love the results as you get darker areas that make the snowflakes pop out.
