Christmas in July


I've been dabbling with cards again. Everybody
seems to be into Christmas in July, and as it feels
like Christmas, weather wise, here in Perth, I
thought I would jump on the bandwagon before
July runs out, OMG, it's nearly August!!
This is my first attempt at watercolouring a
stamped image. A beautiful House Mouse stamp, love them all, Bazzill c/s, BG pp Figgy Pudding
of course and Prima flowers, ribbon from stash.
Still on a learning curve, and have realised, immediately, not to stamp on Bazzill c/s if
watercolouring - not a pleasing effect. Will try another one. Although I am pretty pleased with
the final result. Wasn't too ambitious with my choice of colours, just followed (copied) the stamp's
picture!!! LOL
Thanks for stopping by
Love Jane

What a delightful and charming card this is, Jane! I am not a very good stamper so I truly appreciate how you have made this image into a true work of art!
