Yesterday I wanted to play along with the Christmas Muse card this week. This week there the card was by the very talented Kimberley. The card was not my normal style but I was in the mood for water colouring so decided to give it a go. I was mainly inspired by the water colour effect and the foliage in the left hand bottom square (see below). I came up with this:
I embossed the leaves and sentiment (from Happy Little stampers Mixed Christmas sentiments) and then water coloured. To be honest I am not happy with this card but I wanted to share with you how this card led me to the card below-which I really like and it makes me happy. This is what happened-I was looking at my water coloured card thinking I am not happy with this and then decided-why not just stamp this following the same design and adding some holly and a few gems. I did this and created this card, which I do like. So thank you Kimberley for inspiring me to make 2 Christmas cards!
I will enter both of these into Muse Christmas Visions and 52 Christmas Card Throwdown-green and red challenge.
I will enter the second into One Layer Christmas Card
