a merry little .....

Love Essentials by Ellen by Julie's Christmas Scribbles.  That sentiment gets me every time!

Embossed the sentiment on watercolor paper.  Colored Tombow markers on the dry watercolor paper and then brushed over with water.   The watercolor paper is hand cut and not even (on purpose!!).  I'm trying for a more relaxed style...(can you try to be relaxed?).


Stamps:  Christmas Scribbles (I cut the star away from the tree)
Paper:  Neenah Solar White, watercolor, and vellum
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo, Versamark, Tombow markers
Other:  White embossing powder, silver wire pulled from ribbon, embossing buddy, water brush, heat gun, paper trimmer, mono multi glue, and dimensionals.  (It takes a village).

MOOD WHEN DONE = Merry, Not Relaxed
HUSBAND'S COMMENT = "That's nice."  (Kiss of death, but I'm partial to this card anyway)


  1. You should be designing for Papyrus. I thought this was your inspiration in the store!

  2. It's more than nice. It's sweet and pretty and fresh. Love the colors. Yes, I think you can "try" to be relaxed. It still looks very much like you, and I like that.

  3. I love it! Simple and fun. That star is so sweet. The water colored scribbles over the greeting so perfect.

  4. Lovely colour scheme and very pretty treatment of the sentiment. "That's nice" is right up there with being called "pleasant" which was one of my teen memories!
