VIDEO TUTORIAL: Watercolor Christmas Tree with Colored Rhinestones

Welcome to today’s video, where we ask the question…do naked cards or rhinestones bring our YouTube ratings to Pg-13? Things that make you go – hmmmmm!

Today’s video technique features watercoloring this gorgeous Christmas tree from the Christmas Lodge stamp set. The real magic is in SU’s watercolor paper and the aqua painter, they make all the difference. But wait, the cool techniques don’t end there…let me show you a secret on making Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone Jewels come in “colors”. Now we have a beautiful holiday tree with colored lights. A real WOW this holiday season. Special thanks to Lee Conrey for the rhinestone inspiration!
