Watercolor Wednesday Christmas Tree

Hello! My mom told me she had not seen any posts from me recently, today is going to change that!  This is my second post for the day and I hope you will stop back by tonight around 8 PM EST for our IO Christmas Blog Hop.

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Watercolor Wednesday Challenge.  This week, Kia has chosen a beautiful tree for us to watercolor.  The artist in the video sketched her tree but I used a Picket Fence Studios tree and Ink On 3 Fadeout Ink. The tree stamped so lightly that I was almost painting from scratch but I had a hint of an outline here and there to guide me.  I used a trick I saw Lydia use on one of her FB LIVEs.  Since I couldn't really see where to paint my snow and greenery, I checked my design by placing the printed tree acetate cover of the stamp set over my painting.  Then I removed it and painted what I remembered.  

SCS Challenges are open to everyone and we would love it if you joined us!

Here is what I used today:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
