Watercolor Background Card by Tobi

Hi there! It's Tobi here with an easy watercolor Christmas card - yes, easy!! I love watercolors because you can be creative and messy and if you plan it right, it will always turn out right!

Tape the watercolor paper down with painter's tape (or if you've run out - washi tape!!) and add a wash of pale blue. 

Continue to add darker blue colours. 

I concentrated the darkest colours at the top, finishing off with a touch of black. 

I dried the paints with a blow dryer then added white splatters. 

It's time to remove the washi tape and start stamping!!

I had the perfect stamp picked out for the top (Tim Holtz) and needed a big, bold sentiment for below the watercolors. 

Thanks for joining us today!  May all your days be 
merry & bright!
