Personal Impressions and Happy Little Stampers Christmas candle card

Hello there and welcome to the last Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge of 2017. Wow did 2017 go fast! 

Our optional fun twist this time is Christmas, so we all get another chance to add to the Christmas card pile. Not only that -

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

I came up with this traditional festive card 

1) Stamp the candle image from the Personal Impressions Robin and Candles stamp set onto watercolour paper with black ink,

2) Colour the image with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush watercolours in shades of red, green, and yellow.

3) Paint around the image with pale blue watercolour and let everything dry.

4)Stamp the sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Mixed Christmas Sentiments in PTI scarlet jewel ink, above the image.

5) Add some glue pen to the candle drips and sprinkle with some glitter.

6) Die cut a frame from scarlet jewel card using one of the Sue Wilson Classic Adorned Square Noble dies, and use it to frame the image.

7) Layer everything onto the square base card and add a little bow in the top right corner.

You'll find lots of inspiration over on the HLS blog, and I hope you will join in with us this time. Remember the twist is optional and you can enter any watercolour project you choose.
