'O' Christmas Tree

I have a couple of simple watercolour cards to share today...made using an idea shared here by Kristina Werner. I used masking tape to make a 'tree' shape on watercolour paper, then painted stipes of green watercolours, drying in between each different colour, overlapping the colours until I had covered the whole of each tree. Once dry, I removed the tape, then added sentiments (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Satmpers Anonymous), and doodled frames before adding my watercoloured panels on to kraft card blanks.

I haven't used the masking technique in a long time and what a fabulous result you got here. Great colour blending and a super CAS Christmas card. Thanks for sharing at HLS Watercolour Challenge.
