The figures we see on the Coat of Arms of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico are inspired on those that appear on the Coat of Arms which the Spanish Crown granted to the Island of Puerto Rico at the beginning of the XVI Century. It was first recognized by King Ferdinand by virtue of Royal Decree on November 8, 1511, but it wasn't until March 9, 1905 that a law, establishing the official Coat of Arms was signed. It is the only one in Latin America still in official use since the conquest.
By Carol Nelson. Watercolor Christmas Tree Card. My plan: Stars - could be stamped in VersaMark & heat embossed in clear; or stencil could be used with white crayon or VersaMark/embossing. Then wet the watercolor panel. Pounce on splotches of various colors. Flick some colors to add interest. Stamp snowflake at top & sentiment at bottom.
