Winter Wonderland

Good Morning!

I'm so glad it's Thursday... I had to have a colonoscopy yesterday and anyone who has gone through that or any of you nursing staff out there will know that there is a 2 day prep for this ... The first day I could only eat certain foods, the 2nd day no solid food at all and I had to drink 2 litres of cleansing fluid plus 2 more litres of clear fluid. My procedure was not until yesterday afternoon and I was so hungry but thankfully all was well...Yay! 
I was so glad to be able to have my first cup of tea later that afternoon...

Not being able to go anywhere on Tuesday I stayed in my room and got out my watercolours and some stamps and made a few Winter Wonderland cards... Here's one

I used Gansai Tambi paints and stamped the trees whilst the card was damp using PTI Ripe Advocado ink

You can see I used Versamark and white E/P over the tress but only in certain areas. The stamp I used was a freebie from a magazine last year and it's a solid stamp so I didn't ink all of the stamp to emboss so I could still get some of the Ripe Advocado bleeding through

Once again I used ordinary CS ... This is my personal preferred method and it's more forgiving than watercolour paper... you can go back and add as long as you don't wet it too much. The colours are brighter too.

This is a second entry at Try It On Tuesday

I'll share some more of my watercolour Winter Wonderland cards with you in the next few days ... I hope you don't get bored of them

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by my blog
