Paperfunday Christmas

Welcome to The Paper Funday Challenge for December 2022! The generous sponsor I chose was Mirtillamente Craft Shop and their digital image is called: Scented Chocolate:
If you follow my blog you know I love a digital stamp for its ability to be resized. In this case I've resized it for a smaller image on an A2 sized card and then created a much smaller image and overall repeat. For this second card (above) I drew my inspiration from a previous card I created in April 2020:
There are so many techniques and methods to create cards, it's fun to go back and recreate-reinvent some of my favorite ones! Both of today's cards were printed with a laser printer onto Ranger Ink's Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper on the rough side. If I don't have an image with a face, I prefer the rough side. I think its takes watercolor better. 

Lovely, lovely smooth colors and they work beautifully with The Silver Brushes - Black Velvet #6 or #8 that I love to use. The Black Velvet brushes have a sharp point which can color even the small candy canes and yet hold lots of water for larger areas. I have to say that teal color for the cup is one of my all time favorite colors!
Thank you for joining me today and I want to thank Mirtillamente Craft Shop for sponsoring our challenge. Come play along with us The Paper Funday Challenge - for anything goes!
