And to All a Good Night

April colours

There is a new color challenge up over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  This week we are going against tradition a little and challenging you to add some purple to your Christmas Card.

EK Gorman, 52CCT aI pulled out an older Hero Arts silhouette stamp set for this project, because I thought creating a watercolor night sky with some purple would be a fun way to do this challenge.

I started by watercoloring a circle onto some watercolor paper using Daniel Smith black and purple watercolor paints.  I also splatter a bunch of paint onto the ‘white’ parts of the paper.

EK Gorman, 52CCT bThen using some versa fine black ink, I stamped the silhouette of the the houses and Santa and his slay.  I added some white highlights with my gel pen and then added some stars/snow into the sky.

I can’t wait to see what you do with this fun challenge and how you use purple in your project.  Until then, happy crafting.
