Bring On The Mistletoe!

Hello there,

Welcome to a new week and some new Inspiration for Prickley Pear!  This week I used a Mistletoe image.  I stamped the Mistletoe with Versamark then embossed it with white embossing powder.  This makes staying within the lines really easy!!  So If you are new to water-coloring try embossing the image then coloring.  I cut this image into a small tag, added some ribbon and sentiment. Done.  Quick and easy.  Peerless watercolors used are: Arbutus pink, Blood Red, Olive Green and Ecru for the background. Today is the last day to get RED RUBBER stamps 30% off.  So go do some shopping HERE.  And be sure to stop by the BLOG to see what the design team has for you today!

  1. At first glance this looks like a really nice card. If one takes a second look all I can say is WOW! The beautiful DP all matted, the swirls, branches, and the wonderful image which has numerous details. The colors call out to each other in such harmony. We really appreciate that you are posting art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday. Advent Blessings, Carole
