Today's featured set is Beyond Measure, a faith inspired Christmas set perfect for putting the focus on the true meaning of Christmas. The set also coordinates with the new Christmas Spirit Die Set.
From the first moment I put my hands on this set, I knew I wanted to make a card with the holy family silhouette front and center with just a watercolor wash. So the other day when Trevor was home sick and begging me to paint, he painted hands connected with rainbows and I made this quick, fun little card with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I embossed the image in white on watercolor paper, then did the watercolor wash, hand tearing the edges. I splattered a bit of watered down gesso for a snowy look, then embossed the sentiment in white. When everything was dry, I added a bit of shadow around the image and text with a Copic marker to make things stand out. I finished with a jingle bell/ribbon embellishment and some super distressed edges to add lots of texture.
Okay, that's all from me today. Thanks so much for hopping by! I hope you have a fabulous time along the hop!
