Christmas Down Under

teddy watering window box flowers christmas card

the theme of lili of the valley’s Challenge 66 is Untraditional Christmas, so i was glad that i could participate as i’ve missed a few.  i’m particularly fond of this teddy stamp; i wish there were more. (hint, hint).  until i order some of the oh so cute Christmas stamps, this is the perfect image for a Christmas card for a friend in New Zealand.  i watercoloured the image, added fibres, dew drops and a peeloff sentiment.  i know some stampers refuse to use peeloffs, but it takes me just as much effort to align a sticker as it does to stamp with one hand. lol.  Thanks for popping by.

  1. A gorgeous card, love the colours you have used. Thanks for playing along at LOTV this week, hope to see you next week. Good Luck! Hugs Christine x

    P.S. There is nothing wrong with using peel-offs, they are very handy. To line them up, place a piece of very low tack tape (magic tape) over the peel-off words and rub with finger until peel-off has stuck to tape. Carefully remove from the sheet and place on your card. Rub with finger gently until peel-off has stuck to card, remove tape and then rub peel-off down. Hope this speeds things up for you.

  2. Wonderful colouration to this super sweet image and such pretty paper too Linda – the peel off sentiment is just perfect.
    Thank you for joining us at Lili of the Valley.

  3. How did I miss this card, Linda? I musta been snoozing! This is so pretty. I just love this image and your coloring is so soft and pretty. I happen to think that silver peel-off looks gorgeous on your card. It actually looks like silver embossing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
