Christmas Wishes - The Merry Christmas challenge #36

Wednesday September 27, 2017
Welcome back for another challenge. I hope you played along last time.. The holidays will be here before you know it so this is the perfect time to play along.
It's time for Holly and Ivy team to post at The Merry Christmas Challenge

Oh my I remember this stamp and I have used it so many times in years past. It's a wood block rubber stamp from Holly Berry.  I stamped it on some water color paper and heat embossed with black embossing powder then using my Mission water color paints I painted the deer and the background. I painted the whole card. I watered the paints down more than my first card a few weeks back. This was a lot better.  I stamped the sentiment by Simon Says in the sky and the holly/jolly from Paper Trey Ink on the little sign. I added some snowflake sequins and Nuvo drops in the center. I am more pleased with how this paint job came out.
I hope you play along and entered your card over at
The Merry Christmas Challenge blog.
