Christmas Card Challenges #12

It's an "Anything Goes" challenge for you this week at Christmas Card Challenges.  It's one of my favorites because I get to do whatever I want.  Today's card was very easy to make and makes water coloring so easy. 

For my card I Whisper White for the card base.  To that I added a layer of paper from Twelves Days of Christmas paper pad from Graphic 45.  Over that I used one of the 3x4 Christmas Watercolor Panels from Taylored Expressions.  To watercolor, I used my Faber-Castell Watercolor Pencils.  I love those things!  All you have to do is color then, take your brush and add a bit of water to get the look you want.  So easy!  The sentiment I used is from the Reason for the Season stamp set and I stamped it in Basic Black Archival ink.  Before adding the watercolor panel using dimensionals, I added some 5/8" Whisper White Organza Ribbon.  A few Rhinestone Basic Jewels and it was done. 

All Stampin' Up!® product unless otherwise noted.
