KTZ Christmas Challenge - S5 C3
This card had to use a false watercolour technique. There wasn't a specific technique mentioned so I decided to use 2 different techniques. I thought I'd have a break from Christmas cards and decided to use this KTZ stamp from the physalis set. I used 3 Whispers pens to colour in the flowers and stem, spritzed it with water and stamped it on cardstock. The matting is with Spellbinders labels 4 dies. The background uses watercolour paper. I smeared wild honey, spiced marmalade and peeled paint DIs on a plastic sheet , spritzed it with water and gold shimmer spray and picked up the ink with the watercolour paper. The 'crackle effect' is actually a tree stamp from the KTZ winter sheet (if you look in the bottom left hand corner you can see one of the thicker branches).
