A Watercolor Christmas

We have a brand new challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for you today and, given the weather here in Massachusetts today, it is quite appropriate! It's a WATERCOLOR challenge! (It's raining. The weather could do half the work for you. For reals, though.)

Watercolor Christmas


Okay, so here's my confession. I made three projects for this challenge. Seriously. I just couldn't decide which to use and I didn't hate them, but I was sure I loved them, either, so really, it was kind of a crazy-town sort of mess. BUT, alas, I decided on this one. I painted the scene using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paints. Which I love. With all of my heart. I added a bit of sparkle with my Wink of Stella because... glitter.

I added a few gem stone ornaments and then stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Essential Greetings, embossing only the 'Merry' in gold. I like it. It is kind of cozy, I think.

And now it's YOUR turn! Create a project using watercolor of some kind and link it up over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Woot! Woot!!!

Have a Happy!

  4. Because glitter. Always.
    It's funny how we sometimes create cards that we look at and go "meh" yet others look at it and go "woah. Amazing!" Which is what I'm doing here... :)
