Merry Christmas

Graciellie Design | Paper Poinsettias

Hi there!

Today I’m sharing another card I made using the new Paper Poinsettia release from Graciellie Design! Today’s card features more of the beautiful poinsettias from this collection, along with my favorite sentiment.  Here is a glimpse at the digital images included in the set:

I think they are soooooo gorgeous!

I printed the poinsettias on watercolor paper and used my Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers to watercolor the petals and leaves of the poinsettias. These markers have intense color that dries beautifully and keeps its vibrancy. I am not an experienced watercolorist by any stretch of the imagination, but I’ve found that with a great illustration and great watercolor markers, I can still get some beautiful results.

It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the background for this card is also watercolored using the ink from the markers – I just watered down a bit to reduce the color intensity. I also splattered the card with black, red, and white ink for a bit of interest. Splattering after my card is nearly complete still makes me nervous, but this time I think it worked out perfectly.

Once I had the poinsettias and the background painted and arranged, I added my sentiment and a few glossy black gems.

I hope you like this card and that you’ll check out the Paper Poinsettia collection at Graciellie Design!

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.
