The "Lets's Squash it "Challenge this month is "Nature and Watercolouring", so I decided to make a Christmas card using my Simon Says Forest Border die. First I inked the embossing folder with Mowed Grass and Salty Ocean Distress inks , spritzed with water and ran through my Sizzix machine using water colour cardstock. I then used these colours on my acrylic block added water and coloured the background to make the colours richer.
I then added the Christmas tree from a really old Hero Arts stamp set raised on pop dots for dimension. I added some gem stones for a little sparkle and the gold sentiment is cut from the "Holiday Frames" die also Simon Says.
Its cold and wet here today, not like summer at all so I am in my craft room creating and wishing for the sun to return soon!
