Merry Making – Day 5 Holiday Watercolour

Hi there

Day 5 of Online Card Classes’ Merry Making Class was all about Holiday Watercolour. More fabulous techniques, all outside my comfort zone and all bar one using supplies I didn’t have.

So I chose to follow Debby Hughes’s card for this day of class as I had a Molotow Masking pen…. Luckily I decided to test it before I used it and it seemed to have turned into a permanent blue pen! Argh. I really wanted to follow Debby’s techniques so I adapted it a little and created the snowy background using clear embossing powder and the emboss resist technique instead of masking fluid!

The background was a real challenge for me – I prefer to create backgrounds by blending ink, but I knew I had to give the watercolour background a go. I’m glad I did – I still need more practice!

Anyway, I masked some Avery Elle penguins to create the main image (they are so cute, aren’t they) and embossed a sentiment from the same set to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!
