I knew when I saw this card created by Melinda Everitt that I had to make one. Melinda used paper piecing on her Santa ( you can see her original here http://ifyoublingittheywillcome.blogspot.com ), but that's more hand cutting than I can force myself to do so I tried my hand at coloring again. I see that I still need to add some bling on the tree. I am really enjoying this stamp set.
Many thanks to Melinda for sharing her work.

I must be a real ding dong. I have been able to see a few of the comments under the posts on my blog, but was totally unaware that there is a whole section where you can view all the comments in one place. WOW. I just want to take this moment to say thank you to everyone for all the nice comments. They are all very much appreciated. I wish I had realized that they were there before now. I will certainly keep tabs on the comments section from now on. Thanks again.

These use water based inks and more of a relaxed brushing technique.
This one requires a lot more control and I didn't get same color variations as the instructor had on her samples.
This one uses H2O brand water based paints to stamp an image.
So I came home that night and rummaged through all my CTMH stamp sets looking for the ones that I can use pencils and watercolor techniques on, and stayed up until 2:00 am playing and practicing what I had learned. Oh my. This has opened up a whole new obsession. I will never leave my craft room now. As a matter of fact, it is past 10:00 pm and I just now realized that I didn't eat dinner. It is a good thing I had a late lunch.
