Christmas Stampin' All Year Long!

The new challenge today over at CSAYL is to put down those Copics and watercolor your image instead.  I think some of my design team members may have shed a tear or two.  Putting down those markers seemed to be a true challenge for many of us!  But hey, that's why we call it a challenge, right?

Our generous sponsor this week is InStyle Stamps and they have offered 4 digis to the winner!

My preferred method of water coloring is to use my Stampin Up ink pads and an aqua-painter.
I squeeze the ink pads while the lid is closed and then slide em' open.  Then I just dip the tip of the aqua-painter into the ink on the lid.

I used an image called "Mr. Ludwig".
Here's a close up of my frosty little friend.
I'd love for you to play along with us!  Only 36 more weeks until Christmas - yes, I counted.  Just think, 1 card a week for 36 weeks and you'll be all set!  Have a fantastic weekend and be sure to leave a link to your project over at the CSAYL blog.

Great card. Nice job with watercoloring. I love snowman and I like how you used non-traditional colors for a eye catching card
