Watercoloring for Cheaters Holiday Lineup


Good morning stampers! Hope you had a great weekend! We got our tree up and decorated. This year, we broke down and got a fake tree... artificial tree. LOL. It's really pretty. You have to look REALLY close to see if it's real or not. The kids always LOVE decorating the tree and the house. I cannot believe Christmas is just around the corner. Are you ready for the holiday?

This is another card I put together this weekend with the Holiday Line Up set from Stampin'Up! I used the same method to color... I call it watercoloring for cheaters. It's really the only thing I used my SU! markers for anymore, but I love the results! :)

Again, I added all the Shazam with my atyou Spica Pens and my Sakura Glaze pens... man, I LOVE those pens!

Supplies:

Stamps: Holiday Lineup, Heard from the Heart (Stampin'Up!)
Paper: Watercoloring Paper, Rose Red, Bashful Blue, Regal Rose (Stampin'Up!).
Ink: Black Stazon, SU! Markers
Other: Aquapainter, Ribbon (SU!), Button Bouquet, Cuttlebug, Snow Dots Embossing Folder, Sakura Glaze Pens, Atyou Spica Pens, Scor-pal.

Have a super week everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
