Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #172

We have a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge for you this morning. Katie wants us to Make a Christmas Card using watercolour.

Clean and Simple was the way I played it this week. I used my watercolour pencils and a paint brush to make the to top half of my background. Wink if Stella takes the bottom half. I added the sentiment and trees in black and finished with some white gel pen for snowflakes.

Supplies: White and navy card stock, Poppy Stamps - Trees, Papertrey Ink - Signature Christmas. Simon Say Stamps Rectangular stitched die cuts.

Take a look at the challenge blog, the Merry Monday Design team has created some wonderful cards for inspiration. Stop by, play along and leave some comments.
