Timeless Tuesday.... Watercolored Christmas!

It's Tuesday, which means there is some fun going on over on the Flourishes Newsletter with Timeless Tuesday! This week for FTTC38, Dee Jackson is the hostess with the mostess. She challenged everybody to whip up a watercolored card.

Since my mom is visiting, I didn't want to make a super duper hard card. I wanted a 15 minute creation and I found it using some fabulous ribbon, paper and an elegant image!

I used the reindeer image from the Sleigh Ride set, embossed with gold detail powder, and colored by picking up some waterbased markers with a water brush. To get the watercolor effect, I stamped my reindeer onto Flourishes European Watercolor paper! After I was done, I added a 2mm rhinestone to the nose to make my deer.... Rudolph! Mat it up with some Labels 8 Nestabilities and you're almost done! the paper is actually some leftover glittered Christmas paper that Flourishes sold last year. I stocked up because I knew this would be one of my favorite papers!

Here's a close up of the reindeer....

Well my friends, that's it! If you want to see the official rules, please visit the Flourishes Newsletter for more! Thanks for stopping by! More to come later this week! My mom and I have been busy in my stamp room and the paper is flying! ;-)

See you back here soon!

Beautiful deer card but even better IRL ( that's in real life). I think I saw this card being made...I DID see it being made. Lovely. Mom

Absolutely gorgeous! I really like how crisp and white the watercolor paper is. I have some but it's more of a cream color. I just might have to buy some from Flourish's and try it out for myself. I love your results. The gold embossing really makes it beautiful too. Of course the red rhinestone is the icing on the cake (so to speak! lol)

Thanks for sharing!
