Watercolor freezer paper masking Christmas cards
It's not really my idea, Kristina Werner has a great tutorial on this youtube video
First find some good clean graphic type files, I used a pointsetta, a deer, geometric shape You get the idea...
Cut out the shapes from Freezer paper, and then iron on the cut freezer paper to the watercolor paper (I used cheap kid's watercolor paper,) The tooth isn't great but it works for this type of card. for what we are doing this paper works out well for us and it's super cheap, I can get like 100 bases if I cut them out my self for like $4.00, totally worth it.
I mixed the Starry Colors into the Kuretake Watercolors to get a metallic watercolor pigment, and it really does look nice, it's super fun to mix them up and use them, it makes me happy!
I enjoyed playing with washes, and gradient washes, I also chose to do some flooding techniques for some.
This project was a fun one, I enjoyed getting about 15 hand made one of a kid cards done in a morning.
You can find all my files that I used on the Silhouette Design store
