I was inspired to play along with the Muse: Christmas Visions Challenge. I loved the watercolored greenery and decided to follow that theme with stamps rather than a die.
After taping down watercolor paper, I did a light wash of Forest Moss and Peeled Paint Distress Inks around the edge. I then painted and tapped Distress Ink onto the stamp and stamped randomly around the edges. (Using a combination of Walnut Stain, Ground Espresso, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss--I could have also used markers.)
I used clean water to soften the stamping and give it a watercolor look.
The sentiment is stamped with Versamark and embossed with Copper embossing powder. I watered down some Copper Inka Gold to add metallic splatters to the piece then mounted on dark green cardstock.
