8th Tilda of Christmas


Hello! Kristina here.

For the 8th Tilda of Christmas, I used Magnolia's Pointing Tilda stamp, the Snow Flurries die from Tim Holtz, and also Inkadinkado's Folk Holiday Expressions Tag stamp set.

I used watercolor pencils to color in the stamped image. Because I needed the blue color to match the patterned paper, I combined two pencil colors before adding water with an Aquash brush. I show exactly what I did at the beginning of the video below. I also share a tip for making "fussy cut" images look more polished.

Enjoy!
