Can I just say, I love this set? So last week in the midst of wrapping up some of my other swaps I thought maybe it would be cool to swap a Christmas card for those crazy plan-aheaders. Although those people probably already made theirs last January. My little epiphany was to make a poinsettia out of the Wonderful You set.
A couple of notes about the watercoloring. I like to fill one of my Aqua Painters with Future Floor wax. It creates a glossy look and a little bit of texture between the layers of color. In lieu of matting with another piece of card stock I just drew a wobbly line of gold with my Zig Painty.
