For today’s blog hop I created Christmas card using the newly released Artists' Gouache Set, it features lovingly and carefully selected the twelve rich & vibrant colours. These colours are perfectly coordinate with signature Altenew colour families. For my today’s card I used watercolour paper and Prussian Blue paint (PB28, PW24) to create my background. 

Next, I used a stamp from Majestic Mistletoe Stamp Set and a light coloured ink for a very light impression, to create a draft version of the background.

My last step was to paint the stamped images with different colours from the Artists' Gouache Set. I used Lagoon Green (PG36, PG7, PW24), Pistachio Green (PY5, PY3, PB28, PW6) and Primary Cyan (PB15:3, PW6). To finish the card I coloured berries with a chalk pen and added my sentiment.
