Tuesday Throwdown #266: Watercolour

Good morning, friends! Welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge. Our theme this week is "Watercolour" and we are sponsored by Freckled Fawn.  Check out their online store. They have the most adorable embellishments for all your crafting needs.

If you don't have anything by Freckled Fawn, that's ok.  You can still play along, as long as you follow our challenge theme and make a Watercolour project. I'm using the cute Silver Puffy Heart Stickers by Freckled Fawn.

I started my card with a simple colour wash of yellow in the middle of a piece of watercolour paper. Next came a very Victorian lamp from Chocolate Baroque's Hearth & Home sheet, stamped with VersaFine Black Onyx. Apart from the puffy hearts, I also stamped teeny tiny hearts with ColorBox Silver Ink. The greeting is by Chocolate Baroque, stamped with VersaFine Satin Red.

Here's a close-up of the image. I used my Winsor & Newton watercolors for the hollies and berries and some Diamond Stickles around the flame.
