Great inspiration from Kelly Griglione and Norine Borys:
I love the look of watercoloring when I see someone's work, but it's a technique I really struggle with. My attempts always seem to end up looking messy. But, I gave it a try with this tag.
The vintage Santa was stamped with black ink on watercolor paper, and then watercolored with greens and reds and a little pink and black, with the background in a sepia watercolor. After that was dry, I added some mercury glass stickles to the icicles on the tree and around the edges of the tag and some clear stickles to Santa beard and the fur on his suit.
