Watercolor Christmas Meets Moroccan Spice

I'm happy to be hopping with Club Scrap's Watercolor Christmas collection. If you'd like to see the full list of participants, click HERE.

One of my favorite things on the unmounted stamp sheet is the set of four words in a simple, well-spaced font: peace, love, joy and believe.


I decided to marry a stamped image from Club Scrap's Moroccan Spice kit, several sheets of embossed paper, and a single word from the set to make a pair of multi-layered, elegant cards.


I chose a white card base with kraft, black and red panels. I can imagine this in so many color combinations. The raised surface of the embossed kraft layer was rubbed with Club Scrap's Sandstone ink.


This is a simple design that could *efficiently* be made in mass quantities for your official holiday greeting.





If you haven't already seen my fun "watercolory" creations with this collection, be sure to check out my technique video featuring the adorable snowman image and Derwent watercolor pencils.


Have a blessed holiday surrounded by those you love! Your hopping journey will continue with Josette Trunnell.
