I purchased this Stampin' Up! stamp set when it first came out - I love the illustration and could see it would make a quick card for Christmas. My idea was to heat emboss the image and then water colour select areas to highlight the partridge and the pears.
Make sure you use your embossing buddy on the white card stock before embossing with black.
Always start with the lightest colour when using water colour in confines spaces like this.
Mat and frame your card in colours that coordinate with the image.
Until next time
