Watercolor Night Sky for the holidays

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials8 Comments

Today’s card project features a lovely but fairly simple watercolor night sky background, combined with a gorgeous silhouette tree line stamp, and it all adds up to a very purply, snowy Christmas card!

The design is pretty clean and simple, with just a large die cut word and sentiment floating up in the night sky. I’m trying to break out my watercolors more and more because they really do surprise me with different results every time.

Another aspect of this card that I really like? The 1/2 inch of white space on the card base. This just frames out the bold color on the painted panel so well and also picks up the white yardstick in my stacked word die.

Here is the video showing you how I created the card, including just how many times I stamped that tree die to get it as dark as possible.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I want to give a wholehearted recommendation for the Royal Langnickel Zen Watercolor Brushes. They are so well priced and honestly? I can’t tell the difference between my really expensive Escoda Versatil brushes. I’m quite certain the reason is because I am a novice painter! I probably didn’t need the pricier brushes and I have been using the Royal Langnickels way more. Just a tip for saving on brushes!

    Sorry I missed the give away but that card is gorgeous. Thanks for the video of how you did that background and thanks for being a sponsor of this fun hop.
