So it just occurred to me, that while I’ve been happily playing away with the NEW “The Wonder of Christmas” stamp set in my craft studio, that I haven’t actually shared any pictures with you…..
I’m totally smitten with this stamp set. I can’t stop playing with it….and I have SO many ideas & not nearly enough time to share them all with you, especially as Christmas is only 9 weeks away!!
Without further ado, lets have a look at a couple of quick & easy layouts that you can do at home.
So these pretty girls have been water coloured by hand, using Stampin’ Up! Aqua Painters & water colour paper. I have chosen to go with a traditional colour scheme using Real Red & Smoky Slate (as silver). I’ve also used some Glimmer paper in Silver for the extra sparkly star & of course they’ve both got some Wink of Stella Clear on their wings & halo’s so that they have some shimmer & sparkle to them :-).
Now if you wanted to try something a bit different & mix in a few more colours you could always try something like the pictures I’ve popped below.
This colour combination is Sweet Sugarplum, Elegant Eggplant & Soft Sky with some Wink of Stella in clear.
For these ones I used, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum & Pool Party, they are super summery looking, great for our HOT Australian Christmas. Don’t forget to Wink of Stella the wings ;-).
Here I’ve gone back to something more traditional by using Night of Navy & Delightful Dijon (which is PERFECT for gold). Now I think one of my Angels might have been getting a bit of sun tan, as her skin tone has come out a little darker lol! That’s the joy of water colouring though, each card will always be a little different & I’m totally ok with that :-).
Now last but not least, I cased this colour combination straight from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalogue. This is Wild Wasabi with Crushed Curry & Daffodil Delight on their gowns & Soft Sky again for their wings.
And finally here they are all together. I think these pretty Angels would make a terrific boxed set to give to someone to use this Christmas.
