It's Starting To Look Like Christmas

Hello and Welcome!

Yikes! I'm still in summer mode. But, I am always glad that I had started making Christmas cards in October when hectic December comes around. So here is my holiday card of the season:

I used a "vintage" Hero Art's Christmas tree stamp (from 2006!) which was colored with Tombow markers, sprayed with water and stamped. I then added watercolor and colorful Liquid Enamels on the tree.This card was also inspired by Kelly Latevola's video (on Simon Says Stamp blog) on watercolor stamping.  The sentiment is also a Hero Arts stamp.

For fun, this card uses a gate fold.

This card is entered in:
  • The Watercolor October Monthly Challenge at a2z Scrapbooking
  • The "Christmas" Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp
  • The World Cardmaking Day "Make & Mail" Challenge at My Favorite Things
