Loose Watercolor Scene + Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards Blog Hop!

Hello crafters, it’s Nina-Marie here with you today! Welcome to our stop in the Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards blog hop! I am featuring Pinkfresh Studio stamps and dies as I create a loosely watercolored scene with a shaker too!

The Home for the Holidays stamp set comes with these darling houses that work with a coordinating die, which makes a great window and shaker!

I love to watercolor, and throughout this card, I used a loose watercolor technique to color in the images and the sky. I used the Prima Watercolor Confections to do the coloring. The scene is embellished with snowflake sequins, White Blizzard Nuvo Drops,  and white gel pen details. This created a super pretty snow effect to the sky!

Because the coordinating die creates a window, it is perfect for making a shaker card! I filled the shaker with sequins, including white, blue and snowflakes.

I hope you are inspired to create something for the holiday season using Pinkfresh Studio stamps and dies!! Thank you for visiting with us today and enjoy the rest of the blog hop!
