Water Color Christmas Bulbs

I made this card the other day for a color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers.

The colors to follow were Elegant Eggplant(I used Perfect Plum), Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Old Olive. I decided to do some water coloring using these Christmas bulbs stamps from Market Street(no longer in business).

I stamped each bulb with the same ink. I didn't want a black outline. Then just kept coloring until I was happy with it. I went over each one about three times after letting them dry, or almost dry, to get the darker edges. Then I took an unmounted pine branch image, and just stamped until it was full enough.

I embossed the sentiment by inking in versamark then old olive, then clear powder. It doesn't show up much in the pic, but it's there! :)

Thank you for visiting today! Have a creative weekend! 
My son gets to go trick-or-treating this Sunday, fun!!!
