Pink Holiday Card

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. The theme for this challenge is Christmas Without Red Or Green. As the blog post title says, my color scheme is pink for this card.  My 7 year old will love this for pink is his favorite color.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Polkadoodles. I printed the image on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. I used several color mediums, Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Watercolor Brush markers, Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor, Finetec Pearlescent Metallic watercolor and Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I felt that coloring this image will demand a lot of time from me so I colored this image in sessions. I don't believe I've colored something like this before. It was a nice experience. Slowly done but I love the result.

For this image, my sister's cat, Peppie, is the model. Since I've used pearl on coloring some of the images, this scene does not require a lot of embellishing. I added Pretty Pink Posh gems to the girl's snow cap flower accent, and Nuvo Clear Drop on the cat's snow cap. I might have gotten crazy on the falling snow on the background. I added Wendi Vecchi clear embossing paste using a Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil. I sprinkled Tim Holtz Distress Rock Candy Glitter to the embossing paste while it is wet, then set this to dry.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed this using Delicata Rose Gold Pigment ink  and clear embossing powder. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted Little Elves stamp set. I die cut the strip using Avery Elle Simple Sentiments die. I matted this sentiment strip with a pink mirror cardstock. I also matted the watercolored panel but I added some embossing on the edge using Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders die.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!

  1. Such an adorably sweet image and I love the non-traditional use of pink. I just made a pink and blue Christmas card myself yesterday.
