colour challenge 29

 The new colour challenge for Chocolate Baroque features lovely autumnal colours, so to be awkward I did a Christmas card......
I used a bauble design stencil, sponging white pigment ink through it on a kraft card base. Once the pigment ink was dry, I stamped the new single Christmas stamp Christmas post through the aperture using black memento ink- should have used a stamp positioner, then the postbox may have been straight! (or maybe not, as I don't tend to get on very well with those gadgets!)
Coloured image with my favourite watercolour pencils and a water brush, with white sharpie pen highlights for the snow.

I used the same stencil, this time on white card with peeled paint distress ink for the bauble for my second card. Stamp this time is from the new set floral notes, again stamped in black memento ink and coloured with watercolour pencils - and again with a squiffy image! My excuse this time is that I was trying to get as much of the stamp in as I could - having it straight would have lost the smaller buds............
Sorry in advance, but I am becoming quite addicted to this stencil, so you will probably be seeing more of it that you would like....................
