Christmas Cheer (in July)


Hi friends!  I'm back with my take on this week's Make it Monday challenge to spritz your stamps with water for a water colour effect.  I thought it was about time to at least make a start to my Christmas cards...just not into it in the summer :(  However, I thought the Painted Poinsettia set would be great for this technique, one I remember from 2004 SU workshops!  Remember?  I started with Sweet Blush for the first solid image, but it was a little too sweet and a little too blush (see below), so I restamped the base of the flower with Lovely Lady.


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a lovely day!
