Holiday Card Series 2021 – Day 24 – Dry Brushed Metallic Watercolors

Happy Friday, all! Today I’m sharing an easy watercolor card for Day 24 of the Holiday Card Series. I used a dry brush watercolor technique to create texture on the background. This background is perfect for any dot cards you have! It’s great for trying out different colors of watercolor.

Then I stamped with Simon’s Joyful Season stamp set and white heat embossed. Super simple!
