Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #172 - Watercolor



 Happy Monday and welcome to a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge!

Katie has a super fun challenge for us this week: Make a Christmas card using watercoloring!  Watercoloring is everywhere and I've had so much fun dabbling with my inks, brushes and stamps.  Hope you'll find a few quite minutes (or hours, if you're lucky!) and play along this week!



Be sure to check out the projects our talented Design Team has to share with and inspire you:





I'm also playing in these challenges:

  2. Hello Kathy: I love the beautiful water color wash on your card, I love it when colors blend so beautiful by just adding water, it's like they have a mind of their own. And this back ground is perfect for your silhouette deer, just lovely.
    Thank you for having me as your guest designer, it was a very sweet surprise to learn my card had won the Holly challenge.
