Hi everyone! Diana here with you today to share a fun holiday hello card. This card started out as a traditional Christmas card but as I started working on it I knew I wanted a large sentiment so it changes just a bit.
I started by stamping my desired images with versamark ink onto watercolor paper, then adding platinum embossing powder, and heat setting. then I sprayed my panel liberally with water.
I used my altenew watercolor brush markers to color in my images first. Spraying the water first helps the ink move more freely on the image.
I then watercolored the background to give more texture. I went ahead and added my gold string trim. I did end up with a small splotch but no worries, my sentiment will cover that up.
For my sentiment I watercolored another piece of paper in the reds I used on my flowers. I then die cut the large hello.
I then cut two more from white cardstock to give some dimension. This also helps keep the sentiment sturdy.
Using liquid clue I adhered all three pieces together and adhered them to the front of my card. I stamped a secondary sentiment on white cardstock and die cut it out.
A little closer look at the watercoloring. I am loving the large hello.
