As promised, I want to share the tips and color combinations I used to convert these bright cards into Christmas cards.  For these, instead of watercolor pencils, I used Prima Color Bloom Sprays.  All the colors used are Prima Color Bloom.

For this card,  to get the top strip of color, I used Yellow Mustard with a touch of Frost. The middle vibrant red color is Carmine Red.  The lowest strip is Carmine Red with a touch of Worn Leather.

For the following Card, the top strip of color is the same.  It's a mix of Yellow Mustard with a touch of Frost.  The center strip is, again, Carmine Red with a touch of Worn Leather.  The lower strip is Lime Wedge with a touch of Frost.

Tip:  The Frost (White) goes a long way.  Start with your primary color and then add just a little Frost.  With the Carmine Red, again start with the primary color (Carmine Red) and add just a little bit of the Worn Leather.  You can always add more, if needed.

Tip:  Color your white wire with any Bloom Sprays to match.  I used Empress Gold to color this wire.

Again, thanks so much for watching!!!
