It's this time of year again where we need to start doing our Christmas cards. My very first is a watercolor done with Tombows markers that I just love working with.

Mon Ami - Sanded Whitewash

An other fun technique. I used a brayer to apply color to my white card stock and applied a light coat of gesso , then added texture by running it through a Sizzix embossing folder I then sanded the gesso and went lightly over the texture with a coordinating ink color.
