{Decorate Your Holidays With HAPPINESS}

I'm sharing a quick and easy watercolored Christmas card today:

I stamped the ornament images and sentiment from the Hero Arts "Decorate Your Holiday" stamp set in clear VersaMark ink onto a die cut watercolor paper panel and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.

I then spritzed the panel with water and grabbed a few colors of Zig Clean Color Real Brush watercolor markers and smooshed some color around, keeping the red mostly on the ornaments and sentiment and the greens as more of a background cover, sort of like ornaments hanging from a Christmas tree.

I then backed the panel onto a white cardstock base, added some sparkle and shine to the ornaments with a Wink of Stella glitter brush, and some pink and white iridescent sequins. I added a few white ink gel pen dots to finish it off.

I'm linking up to the following challenges:
