Watercoloring Some Christmas Magic

Stampin Up's Christmas Magic set brings a sense of calming scenery and magic your way.  So, that's why I thought some soft watercolors would be the perfect way to color this image.

What I love about watercoloring is that it is perfectly imperfect.  Not one stamped design and watercolor image will ever look exactly the same.  The colors blend into one another as the water allows, and each sunset can be unique and beautiful.

In addition to the watercoloring, I added a snowflake from the Starlight Thinlits.  Yes, the stars can become snowflakes when the points are trimmed!

AND... where can you use those lace-y points that you cut off?

I took mine and adhered them to another piece of Whisper White cardstock, then punched them out to make small ornaments on the side of the card:

And, that little bow?  That came from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch... Love that punch... and its tiny accessories.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments, so if you have a moment... do leave a note.  Have a great day stamping!

Wishing you some magic today,
