Christmas Mwah!

It's my turn today for Roc's design team and I had great fun making this postcard.
I can't believe I'm going to say this, as watercolours used to scare me so much I would avoid them all costs, but I am loving watercolours! The unpredictability is just wonderful fun to play with. 
For my postcard I stamped Roc's  Heart Vine on to white card and simply coloured with watercolours. Party Dog was stamped separately on white card and coloured with Prismacolour pencils and then glued in place. The mistletoe stamp is also available at the Stampotique shop here. The mistletoe was stamped straight on to the postcard and also water coloured. The text was made using a random alphabet stamp set and the mistletoe has white enamel berries and watered, white acrylic paint splattered snowflakes finished the postcard.
I do hope you like it!
Wishing you a fabulous day. Sam xxx
