Two projects today, one for the current ODBD Shining the Light (#37) challenge "anything but a card" and one for the current Waltzingmouse Sketch (#23) challenge.
For my Waltzingmouse card I used one of the holly images from the Heartfelt Creations set Elegant Holly Swirls. I stamped the image on watercolor using Forest Moss distress ink and then using water and a paintbrush painted the holly by drawing out the color from the ink. The large berries were colored using a red watercolor pencil, water and paintbrush. Candy Cane Stickles were added to the smaller berries. A hunter green button was tied around the wide striped ribbon and then adhered it to the piece as shown. The sentiment was stamped on watercolor paper using Forest Moss.
