Greenery Day

Greenery Day, a holiday celebrated now during Golden Week in Japan is celebrated by members of Oriental Stamp Art with an annual electronic swap.

The Japanese Holly focal image here was created using the "watercolor spritz" technique.The watercolor markers were applied directly to the stamp,then held at arm's length and spritzed lightly with water. The image was then stamped onto watercolor paper. When dry, I tore around the image and highlighted the edge with gold Krylon pen. Coordinating washi paper became the background,
which was then remounted on dark brown metallic card stock.
