Center Cut Holiday Floral Traditional Christmas

I decided to use this beautiful stamp once again and watercolor it with traditional poinsettia colors. I stamped it on Strathmore Bristol Smooth with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it white.

For coloring the image I used Karin Brush Marker Pro colors. I got my hand into some of the green before it was dry and couldn’t completely blot it up, so I decided to use a soft green as a background color and really liked the way it turned out. Sometimes mistakes can be happy accidents. Once everything was dry I cut down the image using the largest Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle and adhered it to a top folding white cardbase.

I watercolored some leftover Bristol Smooth cardstock with some of the green watercolor and once it was completely dry stamped the center cut sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it white. I used a Hero Arts Infinity Circle Die to cut out the sentiment. Sticky back foam was cut with a smaller rectangle and adhered to the back of the sentiment, which was then adhered to the card front with liquid glue.

I like watercoloring, but I need to be more patient and add more layers to create greater depth. Overall, it is a very pretty card and I love this stamp set.
