ho, ho, ho ....

Hello there. I seem to be just having busy weeks lately. Birthdays are just creeping up on me and then I have to really scramble to get a card together. However today I am sharing a Christmas card with you today.


 On a piece of white card I painted the background using Aqua tints. These are watercolour paints that are very vibrant. To get the landscape I used a piece of torn card.


To create the moon and clouds I used a faux bleaching technique with just water.


I added depth to the hills with distress inks that work very well with the aqua tints.


I then stamped the images using archival inks in first and second generation.
All the stamps are from Sheena Douglass.


I tried to add a bit more depth to the moon by adding a bit of Wink of Stella. The stars are added using a white Sharpie.
The dies are the Emerald ones from Hochanda.


So I do hope you like my Christmas offering. I think I will be making a few more of these this season, Theresa xx.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Simon says stamp Monday challenge - Wonderful water colour
