Been carrying on with Christmas makes - I probably have enough but figured it's best to keep going whilst I am in the mood!
This card uses a Never Before Used Stamp - it's not a new one - I think Penny Black released it a few years ago, it's simplicity appealed to me as I thought it was a lovely tree.
I figured on using it to make one layer batch CAS cards with just simple stamping and colouring. Ha! Total cards made with this stamp = ONE. This one! And definitely not one layer simple stamping and colouring!
That said I was quite happy with this when it dried out - I am still very much experimenting with my watercolour backgrounds - and a long way to go - but overall I don't think it's too bad.
I resisted the temptation to 'spatter it', no 'snow' spatters or even water droplets, just left it as it was.
The sentiment is a new one (more NBUS!) from Penny Black so of course I am linking up at the NBUS Challenge too!
