Handmade Christmas Series 2018: Day 1 Watercolors and EH Mondo Holly 2 ways






Here's an exciting sale for everyone!  ellenhutson.com is having a 20% off sale on all dies with the code above.  I've made a list of some "must have" dies when it comes to card making and these are basic shapes that don't necessarily coordinate with stamps.  These are ones I use nearly every time I craft.
Lawn Fawn Heart Stackables dies

Ellens sale happens to coincide with my latest project which uses EH products, the Mondo Holly stamp and dies.  I love their Mondo line; it has gorgeous floral images are they're perfect for watercolors.  With this project, I used Arteza watercolors, as I was invited by the company to play with and review.  If you'd like to see that video, click here.  This project was already complete when EH invited me to share their upcoming sale with my viewers, I thought the project and sale made the perfect couple to combine into one post.  Through Nov 10, 2018, I have a 10% off coupon code for Arteza as well, which is  JasmineBurgess1.  Lets see what I used in the card and here is the video.

Supplies:
Ellen Huston Mondo Holly stamps
Ellen Hutson Mondo Holly dies
Arteza Watercolors  
Strathmore 140 lb watercolor paper
Ink on 3 Blackout
Kuretake gold watercolor
Versamark
Brutus Monroe Raven embossing powder
Brutus Monroe Gilded EP
Be Creative Tape
Gold Foil Embossed paper
Charcoal/ Dark Gray cardstock
Neenah Classic Cream cardstock
MISTI



I've shown 2 different versions of the same card using different, yet simple watercolor techniques.  The reasoning was two-fold.  The first is that I was testing these to see how they performed in comparison to other brands of similar quality.  The other was to show the viewer simple and easy, yet lovely results they can employ in their own cardmaking.  I also like to add versatility to a stamp set if I can.  I think I was successful with each of my objectives and I love how each card turn out.  

Wishing you and yours a joyous Christmas,
Jasmine
