Season's Greetings

Hi Everyone,

another Christmas card - I am getting them done early this year :)

This card was inspired by the challenge Jen Shurkus from Creative Chick and Audrey Tokatch from Pink Originals are running on their blogs - called the coolest Card Series. What fun! The requirements are always snow, combined with something else like stencil, watercolor etc. Now this card uses both a stencil AND watercolor and SNOW - so perhaps it qualifies for both??? But I'll be putting it into the stencil category



I water colored my background, stamped the crazy bird, water colored him and added snow with a Simon Says stencil. The sentiment is also Simon Says, die cut with fun foam.


I am also linking up with:
Christmas Card challenge - see colors below
ATSM - Holiday
Cards und More - Waldbewohner/woodland animals

    

The snow here is melting fast - although not on my card :)

Happy Stamping!

Gorgeous watercolouring, Cornelia ... that crazy bird is just so fun ... love how he's gazing up at the snow ... he looks a bit bewildered by it all! Hugs, Anita :)

The fun foam gives great dimension to your die cut greeting Cornelia. I have tons of the stuff in a drawer and never use it.
Thanks for linking u at ATSM. :)

I must try die-cutting with foam, this looks fantastic. As does the pink and blue contrast, love it!
