Welcome to week 18 of Heart of Christmas, and lots more inspiration for your Christmas creating.
I had so much fun playing with the Cheery Chirps stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalogue this week. It's such a lovely set and perfect for watercolouring.
For the first card, I took inspiration from the sample in the Holiday Catalogue. I used a combination of Aqupainters and Blender Pens, as I find Belender Pens have more control for smaller areas, with the Aquapainters best for the colour wash and larger areas. My colours are Real Red, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Soft Sky.
I also used the Touches of Texture stamp set from the Annual Catalogue, to add some background stamping (Soft Sky ink on Soft Sky).
For my second card, I took colouring inspiration from the lovely Teneale Williams, using Real Red and Crumb Cake for the bird, Always Artichoke for the leaves and Soft Sky for the background. My greeting on the cards is from Merry Patterns.
I have also used one of the Touches of Texture stamps on the background of this card. To finish my card, I have added a bit of Burlap Trim, Linen Thread and a lace doily .
Now it's time to check in with the Art With Heart Team girls and see what they have been up to for Heart of Christmas this week.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a fabulous creative week.
