Merry Christmas 2017 and Some Watercolour Background Cards

Watercolour-christmas-2b

I love the greeting on this stamp.  Wishing all of my customers, class ladies, team members and blog followers a very merry Christmas.  May your season be peaceful and your new year be bright. 

We're enjoying Christmas Day feasting with the Madex Clan then the Durow family are gathering on Boxing Day so lots of family, fun and food for us for a few days.  I hope you are spending time with those you love this Christmas. 

I forgot to 'degrey' myself at the hairdressers before Christmas so while I sit and wait for my home colour to do it's work (and cross my fingers that I have applied it properly) I thought I'd share a few cards I made a week or so back when I woke up with a sudden urge to watercolour some backgrounds.  I used Smoky Slate (a very light grey), Soft Sky and Marina Mist with a touch of Night of Navy as well.  I used a damp aquapainter and picked the ink up from inside the cover after giving the ink pad a bit of a squeeze.  The cardstock I used was Shimmery White - doesn't buckle as much when it is damp.

Some silver embossing and some foil and glimmer paper looked good with the washed backgrounds.  I quite like these ones.  And do you know - I then buried them on my desk and forgot they were there when I was writing and mailing cards to family and friends.  So I'll have to post them to someone next year.  Sort of fits with my slightly disorganised 2016.  Aaaah well, there's always next year to morph into a minimalist, uncluttered, tidy, organised person.  Ha ha.

Have a wonderful week.

Cheers, Sue
