A Christmas Wish











Don’t you just love the calming effect of Baja Breeze?  I can’t stop using it and I’ve bought many packages of it already.  I used it on this card for my base.  Since I used the Ski Slope designer series paper on this card I pulled colors directly from it.  I love that Stampin’ Up! has the matching colors right next to their designer series paper in the catalog this year.  I used Real Red and Chocolate Chip.  I had a feeling that my Watercolor Pencils were feeling a bit neglected so I pulled them out with a bit of Watercolor paper and had fun with this one.  I forgot how much I like the Watercolor Pencils from Stampin’ Up!.  Pair them up with an AquaPainter (which you can buy one large one for $7.25 while supplies last *wink*) and Watercolor paper and you can color like a pro as well. 

The image is from a Holiday Mini set called Home for Christmas.  There are a lot of fun details in this set, but it is so easy to color in.  I especially love the sentiments.  This card came together so easily.  Like I mentioned the colors were pulled from the designer series paper and the sketch can be found here.  There wasn’t much I had to do, but let it all fall into place.  I did move the sentiment layer down a bit and added a Little Felt Flurries snowflake.  I absolutely love these!

My first class at Higher Grounds, formerly Moon Monkey is this coming Tuesday, October 14th.  If you are in the area, join me for a little Trick or Treating fun.  Information is on my website along with the address.
