Let's get away from Christmas cards for a moment. With the weather the way it's been, we might as well think about fall grapevines. The background in the card below was done with watercolour paper, and Nuances from Magenta. We then used the negative of the die-cut as a stencil, to create the green leaves in the background. We then layered the actual cut-out on top of the other two layers.

The printed paper is from Hot Off the Press. I feel that this paper complemented our watercolour background very nicely. Both the Nuances and the Color Bursts pigmented powders are such fun just on a watercolour bacground. Once you start playing with them, you'll find all kinds of reasons and card designs to incorporate the papers you have produced.
