Snowy Christmas Card with Aqua Pigments
Hello everyone, Ashley Tucker here! Today I created a sparkly Christmas card using some Aqua Pigment paints. This is my very first time using a liquid watercolor and I loved it!
I started by taping a piece of watercolor paper to a board. I blended together three colors of Aqua Pigment paints to make a vibrant background. I used the colors Turquoise, Blue, and Blue Violet. Once the paint was completely dry I taped a snowflake stencil over the background. I went over the stencil with some Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste. I removed the stencil while the paste was still wet and cleaned it immediately. I set aside the background to dry while I worked on the next part.
Next I stamped a snowman from the Snow Friends stamp set. I stamped it using my MISTI tool on some Bristol Smooth paper with Raven Detail Ink. I painted the snowman with Aqua Pigment paints and then cut it out with a circle die.
I stamped the sentiment from the Snow Friends stamp set on some black cardstock with an embossing ink. I embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder and then cut the paper into a strip. I absolutely love this sentiment, I think it is really unique and beautiful. I thought it would work well with a snowy card.
To put the card together I took an A2 size white card base and popped up my background panel with foam tape. Next I popped up the sentiment and the snowman circle. To finish up the card I added some highlights and details to the snowman with a white gel pen. I also added some snow to the background of the circle with the gel pen. Finally, because I wanted even more sparkle, I went over the snowman and the snow with a glitter brush pen.
I hope you enjoyed this card. You can check out this card and others on my YouTube channel!
