Merry Berry

Hello friends! 
Are you ready for Christmas? I am!  😁

I am popping in with a quick post about this new stamp "Merry Berry"
from Winnie & Walter.
just for you

The solid images from this stamp offer many possibilities of color choice. I decided that the berries do not have to be all red. I proceeded to color them with Zig markers and Spectrum Aqua. With the help of MISTI, I was able to add various colors multiple times.

Once the images were colored to my liking, I clear-embossed the entire image and colored in the background with Kuretake watercolors.  It's as simple as that.

The key is to use the right kind of paper....I used Bristol paper for this purpose. You can use any watercolor paper (medium to heavy) as well. Hope this inspired with stamps like these.

Very pretty Virginia! The little bow and dot of color at the top is the perfect embellishment. Thanks for sharing! Hope you have a very merry Christmas!
