Christmas Memories

Made my first Christmas card of the season! Yay! I used the 1st sketch of November from the Viva La Verve challenge:  

Here's my card:

I absolutely love the look (and feel) of the rich, velvet background paper.

This stamp set is an oldie but a goodie-one of my all-time favourite Christmas sets.  After stamping the image, I used watercolour pencils and my water brush to colour the scene.  I then added some 'snow' on the trees and buildings for a cool and fun effect using my Snow Marker (after I applied it and let it dry, I used a heat gun to 'puff it up'). The banner was cut out and then embossed and watercoloured:

The sentiment on the inside is from Verve's Bright Spirits- my newest Christmas stamp set that I plan to use for more cards this season :)

Thanks for stopping by!
