I took a whimsical turn for today’s card.  I used a whimsical stamp set, Seasons of Whimsy, and used very non-traditional colors as well.  I am still surprised that I really like how it ended up.

So what do you think?  Did I go over the top on my color choices?  I surprised even myself.  I am usually more the traditional Christmas colors.  But I strayed pretty far on this one!

I will try to quickly explain my madness.  I started with a watercolor wash using Wild Wasabi Ink on Shimmery White card stock.  I then stamped the ornament in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  The string is in Wild Wasabi.  I watercolored the highlights of the ornament with an Aqua Painter and the Melon Mambo Ink.  I will also confess that the sparkles stamped in both colors were an after thought.  Actually they were after I discovered a stray Melon Mambo to the bottom left of the ornament.  So a stamped sparkle comes to the rescue.  Then I realized I really liked the addition.  So a win/win!!

Thank you very much for visiting today!  I very much appreciate your comments.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  Clicking on any item will take you directly to my online store.  Have a Great Day!
