A Pop of Red

Graciellie Design | Winter Reindeer

Hi everyone!

I’m back with another card from the new Winter Reindeer Collection from Graciellie Design!

This time, I went with a smaller image, watercolored it, and layered it on white with just a few pops of red in the berries.

I’ll be honest: I spent countless hours – and wasted a ton of cardstock – trying to color these images (with every medium imaginable) so they would be more “realistic”. I really wanted to do these gorgeous designs by Gracie justice and no matter what I did I just couldn’t get the coloring right. When I finally decided that realism just wasn’t my thing, I was sooooo much happier with the results! I think this card turned out to be pretty fantastic!

Lesson learned: I just gotta be me. 😊

I hope you’ll check out this collection! Graciellie’s designs are simply fantastic!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
