Exciting news to share and a little tutorial!

Hello friends! Today, I have exciting news to share, I am part of a new team in the craft world! Yes, I am part of the Rainbow Tape Design Team! You should go and check out the metallic and masking tapes, the team will be sharing ideas this week and also giving away some tape love!!

So today, I have a super cute and easy Christmas card. I used 1/8"Metallic Red Tape and 1/4" White Masking Tape 

1.- I started with a 3.75" x 5" piece of watercolor paper, masked all the edges with 1/4 White Masking Tape and also added it to the center part to create a little hill.

2.- I painted the watercolor paper with Kuretake Gansai Watercolors, just added blue and yellow and blended the colors until I was happy with it.

3.- I stamped the trees from O Christmas tree set from Concord & 9th in 3 different colors of Distress Inks: Forest Moss, Pine needle and Peeled paint.

4.-  After I finished with all the stamping, I removed the Masking Tape, and with a wet paint brush I moved a little bit of the green onto the ground. Then, I added the 1/8" Metallic Red Tape around the image to create a cool frame. The red tape really pops, love it!

And this is how the card looks like , I adhered the watercolor panel to a A2 White card base and added little drops of White Liquid Pearl to create  snow look.

Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win.
Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!
