Christmas is on its way

Hi there my friends. I seem to have rediscovered my blog which I must say I had really neglected. This time I have a CAS card on offer.

It was inspired by the LIM challenge blog. It sent me looking for this Sheena Douglass stamp which I have had for ages and never got to use. I used watercolour card and stamped in watering can archival ink.

I then used distress markers and a damp brush to colour it in; twisted citron, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch, hickory smoke, lucky clover and a bit of ground espresso.
Considering it is a Christmas card, some glitter had to be used. So I added some Stardust stickles to highlight the snow.
I also added glossy accents to the glass panels.

The sentiment is embossed with a wow embossing powder. And another one off the list!
