Super Saturday at Magenta: Zig Watercolor Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! Still making Christmas cards - they are one of my favorite kinds of cards to make. Today I'm using another new stamp from Magenta called Christmas Foliage, along with an old favorite sentiment. My card is also on the Magenta blog and you can see that post here.

 I stamped this beautiful image onto Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock that I had die cut to size with The Greetery Nordic Frames die. By the way, I love this die for Christmas cards, it just seems festive.

I used Versamark ink to stamp, and embossed the image with gold embossing powder. I chose two colors of Zig Clean Color markers. I dotted the red into the berries, and used a water brush to pull out the green.

This is how I choose the colors I want to use. I ended up using that middle green (041 Light Green), and the red is 022 Carmine Red.

At the end I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in Versafine Clair Glamorous and scattered a few Pinkfresh pearls.

This card was super simple and fast, and it would be easy to make multiples.
