Christmas Duo

Hello AI fans!!

I'm on the Art Impressions with two Christmas cards, I used Ugly Sweater and Cheers to You. These were the color at about the same time, so I decided to similar backgrounds with them by splitting up a watercolor panel and using some pattern papers!

First, I stamped the images and used my Spectrum Noir markers to color them up. I used AG1, AG3, AG5, CT1, CT4, DR4, DR6, DR7, IG2, IG4, RB1, RB2, RB4, Black. Then I used some basic circles to cut them out.

For the background, I cut a panel of watercolor cardstock and did some ink smooshing with Distress Ink, Barn Door & Peeled Paint. I also used some splatters of black from a black ink spray I happened to have on my desk!

While that dried I stamped the sentiments for each card, one on a small die cut circle. The other from a strip of cardstock that I notched one end.

When the watercolor panel was dry I cut it in half, but at an angle. That way each card gets half a watercolor panel. I added some pattern paper to the other half of each card, each one getting their own pattern.

The pattern paper was added directly to each card base and the watercolor half was added with foam tape. Last, I just added each stamped circle and the matching sentiment!
