Prima 12 Days of Christmas: Festive Evergreen Card

Hello again sweeties.

I'm back today to share with a card I created for the 12 Days of Christmas feature on the  Prima blog which is now in full swing. Today we are featuring fabby watercolour pencils...

It's no secret that I love watercolour and I've been looking forward to creating some festive cards with the Prima watercolour pencils. fresh frosty evergreen boughs holly and ivy.

I started out by painting a square of Memory Hardware leather paper with white heavy gesso then added watercolour effects by highlighting the embossed pattern with pencils when dry. I blended using the watercolour brush set and adding a doily stencil for texture.

The velvet "Snowflake" leaves have also been tinted with the pencils and given some shimmer with silver mica powder mixed with Soft Gel.These leaves are divine, a Christmas craft stash must! I've added lots of luscious textures with stenciling, Memory Hardware beads, assorted flowers and die cut snow flakes with a sprinkle of Art Sugar glitter.
