Be Merry Deer

Sunday, November 30, 2014

I am completely smitten with the Zig Kuretake watercolors. I love playing with them and wanted to use them for my Holiday cards too. They are so creamy and luscious! But, stamping with watercolors? I was hesitant. I applied the paint directly to the stamp. Voila! It worked! Not perfectly...but it worked. :) I must confess; it didn't work every time. I had to play around with getting the right consistency. But it was fun and it was worth it.
I used a stencil and embossing paste to get this wonderful texture. It too, was painted with watercolors.
 I love those metal stars. They have have some real heft to them.

  7. I always love how you use so many unexpected products together! You are a true visionary and I really like the incorporation of the retro music. I also thought your watercolor-stamping turned out beautifully! Nice to hear that even artists like you, whom I admire, have to practice techniques sometimes!
