Comments
  1. Your control of the brush and paint is amazing and enviable. I get a fairly good start, then my eyes wiggle and I mess up my line! LOL! Sheesh..old eyes.

  2. Very pretty, however, I don’t have a steady hand, so I might try masking and painting within the negative space. I might give it a try. Thank You.

  3. You are the queen of making extra details look easy! Those ribbons looked so effortless….. for me i might need to do a pencil line first. You definitely have inspired me to jump in with both feet in my watercolouring!! Thank you:)

  4. Perfectly wonderful from using sentiments that fit into ornament shapes to using these beautiful paints on black cardstock – I love these and feel very inspired!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

  5. Love those pearlescent paints for the ornaments, both cards turned out so gorgeous! Those ME sentiment stamps are definitely going on my shopping list, they are fantastic!

  6. I thought it looked like earth when you first started as well. Not such a bad thing… and a good idea for another project! I might have to try something like this, but I just got the Hero Arts infinity die ornament set, so I could do a layered card with this effect. Oh, the possibilities! Great cards – lovely idea! Thanks for yet another year of cards. Love them!!

  7. Wonderful cards! I love those pearlescent watercolors. Might have to add that set to my Christmas wish list! I wonder if you've ever tried applying watercolor ground (transparent) to black cardstock? I've used it on patterned paper when I wanted to alter the color, and it worked really well–even better than I'd hoped. No major warping and absolutely no pilling. It could be a good alternative to black watercolor paper. I know Daniel Smith even makes black watercolor ground. Just a suggestion for anyone who is interested. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous artwork, Kristina! Take care, & have an awesome day! 🙂

  8. These ornament cards are so pretty! It is so interesting to watch the process and learn how you decide on the design and then make them.

  9. Those pearlescent paints look awesome. The cards look really look nice. I don't have the paints you used. I might try making these ornament cards with alcohol inks.

  10. Such beautiful cards! I can't choose between them, so I'll take both. 🙂 Thank you so much or taking time to share. Have a very blessed Thanksgiving.

  11. I absolutely love these cards! I have these stamps and watercolors, so, going to give this a try! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  12. You are amazing! The cards are beautiful. I can't get over how you painted those circles so beautifully and didn't have to turn the paper. Thank you.

  13. What stunningly gorgeous ornaments! Thank you for showing the actual watercoloring! The bows were such a nice finishing touch. 😍

  14. These are my favorite cards I've seen. I have been watching a lot,too! You are such a precise artist and such an eye for how to complete your jmagined vision.

  15. Beautiful, as usual! I, too, love watching you draw or any calligraphy or lettering! So inspiring! So, thanks for sharing!!

  16. WOW, these are stunning, I love the sentiments in these sets and I definitely want some black w/c paper…. enabler alert… LOL

  17. You're amazing. Love that you did this freehand. I know the shapes are simple but not always easy. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

  18. Such gorgeous paints! Love the non-traditional black Christmas cards. And such a creative way to use the stamps. I miss your holiday questions. I love to read everyone's comments. TFS, Heather
