Yeti to Party Christmas Card Using Watercolour Pencils

July is World Watercolour Month. I love to watercolour so this is a great excuse to show you some tips and tricks to create a Yeti to Party Christmas card using the Watercolour Pencils. Today's card uses the Yeti to Party stamp set. It's adorable & perfect for birthdays and Christmas!
This Yeti jumped out at me in the Jul-Dec Mini Catalogue cause it's so darn cute! It can be found on page 38 of the catalogue. And on the next page you will find the Whimsical Woodland 3D Embossing Folder. For this card I've added some White Craft Ink to the embossed Shaded Spruce cardstock using a Sponge Dauber to add the ink to the raised trees. It adds a layer of interest to your card. Have you tried adding ink to an embossed image, drop me a comment below to let me know.

In the above photo you can see the trees that I used both Granny Apple Green that is very close to the Parakeet Party ink used to stamp the trees and Garden Green. Mixing pencil colours can expand the colours you have access to. I did the same with the mountains, mixed Balmy Blue and Cajun Craze together. There are 2 packs of Watercolour Pencils available from Stampin' Up!. If you have both packs then you can mix and match the colours. 

To add colour using the Watercolour Pencils is adult colouring! Fill in as much of the image you want with the pencil(s). Add more pressure but not too much if you want a portion to be darker. Next step is to decide if you want to soften the lines or colours. If you do, like I have on this card, you would use a Blender Pen to add liquid to the Watercolour Pencil lines to blend the colour. A word of warning if you use Basic White cardstock like I did, be careful how much you blend or how hard you press down with both your pencils and Blender Pen or you will damage the cardstock.
