Watercolor Winter Scene – Neat & Tangled STAMPtember stamps

Hello, all! I have another card made with a new STAMPtember collaboration stamp set for you today. For today’s card, I used Neat & Tangled’s Holiday Helpers stamp set to create a scene with a watercolored forest background. Since this is a STAMPtember collaboration set, there are limited quantities of both the stamp set and stamp set and coordinating dies combo. If you’re thinking about picking up this stamp set, I suggest you do it sooner rather than later. :)

(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).

After masking and stamping the scene with the Holiday Helpers stamps, I applied masking fluid over the images to protect them while I painted the background. I used Mijello Mission Gold watercolors to paint a forest background. I think the key to painting forests like this is to create a layered look by painting some lighter trees, letting them dry, and then painting darker trees over the top. This gives the forest “depth.”

I hope you enjoy today’s video. It’s a longer one, but I didn’t want to cut out too much. Thanks for stopping by!

    Wonderful idea on the trees. I will try this and I like the idea of how to make them lighter and darker for depth. I always learn so much from you. Thank you

    I love this beautiful card and the technique that you used! I purchased some masking fluid some time ago but haven’t used it yet. I guess now I am going to have to try this! Thank you for your wonderful, detailed tutorial!

    Love the unique scene you created. I’ve seen quite a few cards made with this set, but yours is so Kristina in design and execution.

    Kristina, this is a stunning card. Your vision for the scene is inspiring! And I’m so glad you showed how you changed up the sentiment.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    Living in Australia we don’t have a white Christmas so it’s a delight to indulge in your gorgeous Christmas cards – love the trees and so pleased that even I could make them look good!
    Thanks for all your terrific videos, Kristian

    Adorable bear and mice! My watercolor skills are at the beginning stage, but even I think I can do the trees. Certainly going to try the trees. (It’s never to early for Christmas cards)
