It is a Perfect Pear kind of Christmas!

I adore the stamps from Penny Black which are made to create the watercolor effect. The current new release contains gorgeous Christmas designs and make for wonderful and easy card panels.  Zig clean color markers make up the coloring on this card through various different techniques. Perfect Pear stamp creates the focal point for today’s card.

I used Zig markers and did some different techniques for the varying watercolor looks.  The amount of water used change the look of the ink on the watercolor paper. A watercolor wash creates the background while the foreground uses less water and more ink.   One more Christmas card completed and only a gazillion more to go! Perfect Layers tools create the matting for the completed image.  I grabbed papers from my older stash of Christmas papers.  Whimsy stamps sentiment creates the finishing touches using versafine in black.
