Teeny Tiny Townie

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing another Christmas card project with you all!

I started my project by stamping this image by Stamping Bella, called “Teeny Tiny Townie with a Pine Cone”, onto Clairefontaine Paint On a Grain paper (with the blue logo) using Spectrum Noir Water-Proof ink (you can use any water-proof ink you have).

Next I die cut around the image using a nesting die two sizes smaller than my card base, followed by stamping my sentiment (which is in Dutch from a way old no name stamp set).

Now I can colour the image and today I’m using two brands of watercolour pencils: Caran d’Ache Museum Aquarelle and Faber Castell Albrecht Durer, this in combination with my aqua-brush.

From the Museum Aquarelle line I’m using the colours: 249, 719, 070, 055, 049 and 004.

From the Albrecht Durer line I’m using the colours: 132, 189 and 193.

I added about three layers of colours and let them dry in between (otherwise you will damage the paper). After the colouring is done and dry I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.

The rest of the card is pretty easy: I die cut a slightly larger red panel one size smaller than my card base and adhered both panels together using liquid glue and than I adhered that combination onto a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s card project! I wish you a creative day!
