Let it snow ...

Hi everyone!
Ready for another 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge? This week we are asking you to use


It's been a long time since I last used watercolor. 
The snowman is a stamp from Penny Black, but I did not stamp with ink as usual, but with water! 
I provided the watercolors beforehand because the water soaks into the paper very fast. After stamping the snowman with water, I quickly started adding the watercolors to establish the outline and main details. From then on, it actually wasn't difficult to finish the image. 
Finally, I splashed the card with blue watercolor and added the sentiment and the bunny (cats on apple trees). The stamp I painted with watercolors and stamped on the card. Since the first try wasn't quite what I had in mind, I stamped the bunny a second time using the same principle, cut it out and pasted it over the one on the card. That way it was ok! 
I backed the card with blue glitter cardstock and glued it to the blank card.  

Have Fun!!
