The fourth tag challenge in the Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist is Watercolor.
A card from a friend last week reminded me that I had to yet to break out the Christmas Grumplings this year, so it was time to ink them up.
I sprayed my base tag with water and then sprinkled on A Bit Jaded Infusion Dye Stain. The walnut crystals combined with the dye pigment produces such a cool effect. I blotted a bit to get the softer blended watercolory look for my sky.
I attached my snowy hill and then water-colored my Holiday Penguin Grumpling using markers and inks. He turned out a bit *grayer* than I intended, but that seemed just about right for a Grumpling.
I finished with my stamped sentiment, iridescent snowflake sequins in the sky (which photograph in strange pinks and blues), and a golden ribbon to finish my design.
I'm also joining the Tuesday Throwdown which is to create a Christmas Scene.
