CASE-ing Christmas: Watercolored Christmas Tree


Hi, all!  Welcome to another post for a new weekly challenge at CASE-ing Christmas! Take a peek at this week's CASE card...

Card by DT member Daen'Ys.

I loved the colors and layout of this beautiful card.  I also loved the use of washi tape!  Those were the things that inspired my CASE.  Take a peek...


I started with the image.  This one is by Hero Arts.  I heat embossed it in a deep green and then watercolored around the embossing.  This was layered onto some die cut oval pieces.  The middle oval was dry embossed before adding it.  The washi tape behind it was added before these layers and the enamel dots afterwards.


The last think to do was to add a sentiment.  This one was stamped in black and highlighted with a clear Sakura glitter gel pen.  I believe this sentiment is a retired studio G sentiment.


I love the way this turned out!  It looks so fresh and the colors really POP!  What are your thoughts?  I would love to know--please leave me a comment! :)


That's all for me today, friends!  I hope you come and play along with us at CASE-ing Christmas!  I love seeing all your amazing creations!  I also hope that you leave a little bit of love with the other gals who have CASEd this card--they have stunning creations!  HUGS and MERRY stamping to you all! :)
