ATSM #187 Make Your Mark, One Christmas Card

We meet again at Wednesday and it means a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More (ATSM) this week we have theme: Make Your Mark

We have a lovely sponsor from EUREKA STAMPS:

Prize is: 3 Digital Images

I did not made any christmas card since January :) also this time I took my wood stamp, stamped with black ink on a white cardstock and started to coloring this lovely Image with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set. I think I like to make my own background on my Blue cardstock. Also using a DIE I made some stars some are on the cardstock some are die cutting papers. 

For more interest I sponged the main image (white paper with postmarke shape) with blue distress ink.

I hope you get inspired and like to join us this week at ATSM challenge. Klick HERE to join.

1. Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
