Technique Tuesday is doing a "Watercolor Christmas" feature today, and I am happy to be joining along. I am certainly at the beginner level for watercoloring, but hopefully this project will help inspire you to pick up a paintbrush and just go for it.

Watercolor Christmas with Technique Tuesday
One thing I've learned is that embossing helps me a lot when I watercolor. I don't execute the loose feel very well yet, so embossing my images really helps me. Bounds are set, and I simply have to work within them. I embossed this beautiful Joyous Juniper Stamp Set from Technique Tuesday in silver several times to cover my cardfront and frame a sentiment from their Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set.
Then, I got to work watercoloring. I have just basic supplies, so I mixed a few colors to create the shades I wanted. Although I was tempted to do this card in bright reds and greens, I'm a lover of blue, so I embraced juniper's natural colors.
Thanks for stopping by today! You can find lots more wonderful stamps in the Technique Tuesday Christmas Collection here. I hope you'll check it out and give watercoloring a go this week. Whether you are experienced or not, it's a lot of fun!
