Holiday Card Series 2019 – Day 12 – Faux Dip Dye Watercolor & Snowflakes

  1. So beautiful! I agree with you, as I would also not want to cover that up that gorgeousness! I’m about to hop on a cruise & brought watercolors to do some creating while at sea, and I’m going to have to try this.
    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. This card is my absolute favorite Christmas card of ALL-TIME! I can't express enough how happy I am that you showed the watercoloring process in real time. Thanks so much for sharing, Kristina!

  3. BEAUTIFUL!! This card would be so pretty as a set to give as a gift….with a blue card, pink, purple, etc. Love the snowflakes and the sparkle. TFS, Heather

  4. Thank you for showing your seasonal cards…love you videos. I look forward to your videos on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays 😊

  5. I love everything about this card! I really enjoy watching the whole process and I even want to give a try to water coloring. I’m not sure I can achieve the results you do but it is very encouraging to see your videos

  6. Love this card and technique! I have a couple questions: first, I know the Kuretake gansai (or any gansai for that matter) can get shiny with multiple layers. Does that happen with these? Second, what does your shirt say, I have to know if it’s a Harry Potter t-shirt. I know that would make a great gift for some people I know!

  7. Lovely! Q: Being a huge craft channel, do you know what the status of your channel will be after the big COPPA rollout in 2020. Lots of creators are deleting their channel. Not sure if only monetized channels are going to be targeted.

  8. This watercolor piece is awesome! I can't wait to try this out for myself; it looks like so much fun and really relaxing. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Beautiful! I'm gonna give this a try!! I noticed you didn't use the Non-stick powder before you stamped with the Versamark. Does it not work well with watercolor? Thanks!!!

  10. I bought those watercolors last year because you use them so much and I loved them. I need to break them out and give them another go! ❄️❄️❄️❄️

  11. Wow! Wow! Wow! I love this card! Thank you for not sending it up so we could see the process of how you did this. I would like to also see this done in a red gradiate card too.

  12. This technique is so beautiful. I love these colors and I had no idea had many layers of color you needed to make it. Thanks for showing the process. Maybe you should frame this card!

  13. I absolutely LOVE this watercolor! I watched you getting ready to stamp on it and I started to scream at you to leave it alone, don't stamp on it! LOL, you stamped it anyway and it looks beautiful with the stamped snowflakes and sentiment, but oh how I loved just the background. TFS the technique. I may have to try that.

  14. It amazes me that I've been following you for so, so many years and I still am surprised and in love with your stile!! Thank you for still putting in the work to share so many different Christmas card ideas every year

  15. Awesome background, Kristina!!! I love the whole look. I've tried faux dip dye (at least I assume that's what I was doing), but never did it quite like that, and never liked the results. I'll have to try this your way. Thank you for the explanation of dip dye, with the harsh line at the top. I hope you don't take this as a criticism, but I noticed the embossing on the greeting was a bit "pock-marked." Was that because of the texture of the paper, or something else? Again, I don't mean this to be disparaging; I'm just curious, as I've had that happen to me before. I'd just like to know if there is a way to prevent/fix it, or if it is just the nature of the heat-embossing beast. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous artwork. Take care, & have a most wonderful day! 🙂

  16. I absolutely love your background, too. In fact, I wish you had kept the etherial, eternal looking scene uncovered and just added a small word subtle gray sentiment with maybe a small star — something like All is calm, All is bright. Your background set such a beautiful mood I was sad to see you cover it with big words and and sequins. : ( I know everyone will hate me for saying this. . .

  17. Captivating! Except for the stunning colors, it reminds me of sand dunes. Such an unusual and fascinating technique. Might have to give it a try! Thanks.

  18. I love this card and hope I can try it one day soon. It turned out so beautiful and reminds of looking out over the Blue Ridge Mountains in northern Georgia!

  19. Wow! I love the simplicity of this card! I wouldn’t have thought to leave the raw edge. The die dipped technique is one that I will definitely be trying this season!

  20. the ad you put up before your video was really good I watch the whole thing and clicked on it. Its an art store in Canada. I will check them out for sure. Great video as always! Merry Holidays!!

  21. Time consuming yes, but totally worth every minute you put into it. Gorgeous card Kristina. Great series, thank you for sharing.
