Non Traditional Holiday card | Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop


Hello everyone! Welcome to this weeks blog hop for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration team. We are having some fun with Non Traditional Holiday card ideas. I thought this would be a great time to use the Neon Aqua pigments again and watercolor a few of those detailed ornaments from the Holiday Essentials set. 


To get started on this card I trimmed down a piece of Raven card stock and used a pencil to sketch out some lines for my ornaments to hang from. This also makes it easier to stamp them. Using a few at a time I stamped with Clear Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Alabaster embossing powder. There really isn't a rhyme or reason to the arrangement but I did start with the stocking a few of the ornaments first. That way I had the largest image out of the way and wouldn't have to worry if it fit later on. 


The Neon Aqua Pigments are really fun to watercolor with. To achieve the potent pop of color, I did go over each watercolor, at the very least, three times. Letting each mostly dry between coats. Once I had all the watercolor done I used white acrylic paint, I have Copic Opaque white, to brush on the white lines over top the pencil. Then I splattered the entire piece with the Neon Yellow and a bit of the Pearl Aqua Pigment. 


I stamped the sentiment on the sides over top Phonebook card stock and attached it to a Not Your Momma's card base. Then I attached the Neon Aqua Pigment piece over the top. Anyone think it looks a bit like caution tape on the sides? lol not intentional but it made me laugh. 

Hop along with the rest of the team and see what they did for the Non Traditional Holiday theme!
