Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a Christmas wreath decoration card.
I first taped down my card to my work surface with masking tape to create the border then sprayed the background with Nuance powders mixed with water. 
Once it was dry I stamped the image with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Platinum embossing powder. I removed as much of the colour as possible with bleach from the areas to be water coloured. I also cleaned up some of the taped edges where the water colour spray had seeped under the tape. 

I water coloured the image using Fintec pearlescent watercolours to give it a nice sparkle and used a blue gel pen to edge of the background water colour. You can't see it in the photograph but it just sparkles a little. I stamped the Season's Greetings sentiment using Versafine Clair dark blue.

I wish the photos could reflect the brilliance of this card. It must be a stunning sight! Bleaching and re-staining gives such amazing results, I love how the pearl flakes pop out of this gorgeous background. Great inspiration. Thanks to you, Christine, this stamp looks very interesting!
