Believe..in the magic of Christmas!


A Christmas card, specially made for you, who stop by my little space and take the time to leave me some really encouraging comments..thank you so much, you are deeply appreciated!

Santa came by early this year....I was on  the' nice' list you see!
..and got me some watercolor crayons, and not just any watercolor crayons, he got me Caran D'ache Neocolor II ! This set has been on my wish list for almost 2 years now, and I, somehow, could never justify getting myself watercolors in crayon form, since I am more comfortable using pan colors and find them more vibrant  than tubes.

But if you remember, I had mentioned in an earlier post, that I am an 8.... .. that was Dec 8th..my birthday! So hubs surprised me with a lovely set of Holbein Irodori watercolor set and a set of the Caran D'ache..my jaw dropped to say the least!

For today's card, I have used the Neocolors. They are so much fun to use, and the crayons took me back to childhood! My first set of Crayolas was left in it's original packaging for a verrrrry long time! I had refused to open it and use it, in the fear that it would  get 'over' ..until my father got me another set to keep and admire! lol!

                           Nativity stamp is by Sweet stamps and the sentiment by Inkadinkado

 I started by stamping the image and coloring it in. Then I went around the image with a wet brush and dropped in the colors wet in wet ie. while the paper is still wet. Then sketched in the foreground and the tree. Once dry, splattered a hint of white paint and stamped the sentiment.

 Have a wonderful holiday everyone and thanks so much for stopping by !
