Happy Little Stampers - November Christmas Challenge

This month at Happy Little Stampers the Christmas Challenge is all about using watercolours.  Such a very popular technique with the possibility of wonderfully random results.

Here's my card. And oops purple is allowed for Christmas, right? Thought so!!!!


I started by using the smooshing technique to add inks to watercolour card. Once it was dry I stamped the deer and trees on top of it, adding some more of the same ink colours to the saddle, scarf, nose and hooves using a fine brush.


I die cut the central square and a frame and then added this fun sentiment and a couple of sequin trios.

Supplies:
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Let's Prance
Inks: Ranger distress, blueprint sketch, wilted violet
Die: Spellbinders, classic squares large
Sequins from my stash

Well I'm guessing most of you are well ready to start making Christmas cards for your stash right now, so this challenge will be just perfct. Two birds with one stone - Christmas and glorious watercolours. If you haven't already do go check out the rest of the HLS DT cards - here.

So pleased to have your company for a while today, thanks for your time. And keep crafting!
