Holiday Card Series 2017 – Day 19 – Easy Watercolor Coloring

Hi all! Happy Wednesday! Today is Day 19 of the Holiday Card Series for 2017. For those who are are new to my blog and videos, the Holiday Card Series consists of 25 holiday card inspiration videos. I’ll be sharing holiday inspiration every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until December 20.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

For today’s card I wanted to do a bit of watercoloring. I chose an image from Art Impressions’ Sparkles & Cheer stamp set and used the stamp packaging as a guide for how to color it. I kept it super simple by using two shades of the same color for each area–a lighter shade over the entire area, and then a darker shade for the shadows.

I used Mijello Mission Gold watercolors and Royal & Langnickel Zen watercolor brushes. I also added some white details using a white Gelly Roll pen.

To finish off the card, I diecut the scene using Avery Elle’s Large Pierced Scallops die set, and foam mounted it to the card base. The background was stamped using Simon’s Christmas Sweater background stamp in Emerald Green Delicata ink.

Thanks for stopping by today!
