Watercolored Poinsettia Wreath

Hello and happy Monday everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! It’s TaeEun here today with a holiday card. Our Fall 2019 Release includes five gorgeous holiday stamp designs. I’m using one of them called, Poinsettia Wreath! Surely you’ve seen beautiful inspirations using this stamp set already. For today’s inspiration card I did no-line coloring.

I started by stamping the Poinsettia Wreath in a light colored ink on a Canson watercolor paper panel. I then started watercoloring the poinsettias. For the red part of the poinsettias I used only one color; Cadmium red. I added different shades by coloring in layers.

I wanted to tone down the green color. So I added a bit of brown to sap green. The holy leaves were colored in Hooker’s green and purple. I also colored the inside of the wreath in purple and added white splatters to it.

After the panel was dry, I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle dies and foam mounted it on a kraft cardbase.

The sentiment was cut using Holiday word dies from adhesive Gold Foil paper and three times more from some white cardstock. I stacked them together and added it onto the card. The “Christmas” is from Holiday Trio set. I stamped it in Grape Crush on a strip of white cardstock and adhered it underneath the die cut “merry”.

There are so many things to learn in watercoloring and the big image of Poinsettia Wreath is great for practicing watercoloring! It took me about 4 hours to color, but it was worth it! Hope you like my card too!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

    This is so brilliantly done TaeEun and I love the way you have kept the look of the leaves and holly leaves a little paler so that the poinsettias stand out more. x
