Christmas Wonder

This is Christmas Wonder, and the first time I have inked up this new to me stamp, which I really love called Cones and Berries by Penny Black. I started this card by first doing a watercolour wash using Daniel Smith watercolours in Manganese Blue and Cobalt Violet. To stamp the image, I coloured first with the browns, then the red and green colours using Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I added some White Gel Pen to the pine cone as well as scattered on the card. To finish I die cut my piece with the scalloped stitch trimming die and added a few small sequins.
Products: Penny Black Cones and Berries, Penny Black Believe, Memory Box Scalloped Stitch Trimmings Die Set, Paper Garden Lavender cardstock for base, Fabriano Hot Press 140lb. watercolour paper, Daniel Smith Watercolours, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, White Gel Pen, Sequins.
