Watercolour tree

CR00536 square

These are probably my favourite cards this year. I love the variation you get from layering the strokes of different greens.

Where Kristina Werner kept her Easy DIY Tree super simple, I decided to add some sparkle. I heat-embossed a pot and painted it gold, and then added a glittery die-cut star to the top. I finished it off with some gold glittery dots scattered around the top half of the tree.
