Art Impression Challenge

Hi everyone!!

Hello Ai team and friends!! :)

As I saw the new Christmas stamps and all the card from my ex-team-colleges on the Art Impressions website, I couldn't resist but to participate in this months challenge!! I'd love to win some fun Christmas stamps!!!!!!!!!!! :)

So I opened my Christmas stamps box and was delighted to find a stamp I ordered in my last month of DT work for Art Impressions! Look at this large watercolor Christmas tree and these two little lambs!! 

At first I thought I couldn't add much color to it, but hey, I think it looks fabulous! :) I love that I could do the sky a dark blue and purple.

And for some extra sparkle I added some clear Wink of Stella on the branches covered with snow and on the star. It was hard to capture on the picture but in real life, it's truly stunning! :) I also added some snowflakes with a white Gelly Roll pen and they are kind of shimmery too so it's pretty awesome. :)

I know that Christmas feels like moons away, especially since I now love in the South and we still had 75 degrees today, but I think that we have a northern internal clock in us and Christmas music is in full swing again in my car since 2 weeks (kid's request) so, the card, the sparkle, the music, BRING IT!! :)

Thanks for looking!!
