Merry Christmas Poinsettia Watercolour

Its time to start inundating you with finished Christmas cards. I coloured my way through last year and actually have to try and stop myself using the stamps I ordered last Christmas to make more as I need to finish up cards and send them out.
I got all the backgrounds, die cuts, stamped, coloured, heat embossed backgrounds and images together and at first I just sat there staring at it all and thinking ohhh my goodness where to start.

The next thing I did was to sort them into some sort of order then put it all on the dinning room table that is opened to its full extent. No puzzles for a while and time to get moving on them.
Trying to resist looking at all the new ideas and styles and just pushing myself to like what I see and use it.

This is one of those amazing background stamps from The Ton stamped and gold embossed on multi media cardstock. Coloured with Zigs and water and of course there is sparkle added which you can see if you click on this image.
I trimmed the image and added to a bright green cardstock. I then added the big 'Merry Christmas" sentiment.

Thats it for today, because Scott asked if he too could do some Christmas cards. So setting him up and teaching die cutting, colouring, assembly using double sided tape and glue for those wonderful sparkly die cuts and sentiments is a bit slower than at first anticipated but we are both on our way now.

See you soon with lots more.
