Splash Watercolor Background for Christmas Florals - KSS

I didn't plan to, but somehow I got caught up in Splitcoaststampers' Falliday Fest and find myself today two cards short of completing all 30 challenges and 7 bonus challenges. For this card sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I used today's Try a New Technique Challenge from Splitcoaststampers seen here. The background for this floral Christmas design was created on watercolor paper using Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey Distress Ink. After they had dried, I stamped the spray of roses and greenery on top. I like the rough look of the stamping over the colored watercolor background. I hope you do to!

I finished the card with a die cut sentiment from Sizzix's Home for the Holidays.

Kitchen Sink Stamps used for this design include:

Heart & Roses Multi Step Clear Stamps
Holly & Mistletoe Multi Step Clear Stamps
Build a Garland Multi Step Clear Stamps

Now I only have one more card to go!!


  1. Lynn this is so pretty! I loved how flowers and leaves pop on the background. I have been falling behind with the challenges but will hopefully give today's technique a try!
