Here's my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions where DT Member Chriss gave us this cool inspiration:
I just think Chriss' penguins are absolutely awesome! And I knew that despite my recent attempts with watercolour, that I was not up to hand drawing and colouring penguins. All my penguin stamps are very whimsical, and I did want to try to achieve a similar feel to Chriss' card so I had to think of something else.
I focused on Chriss'
-watercolour technique. Same background wash technique as for this card.
-grey-ish focal image of a group (stretching too far??)
-red and black sentiment
-Tim Holtz Tall Trees Pine Stamp
-Papertrey 'Tis the Season Sentiment
I am also linking up to Simon's Wednesday Challenge : For a Guy (featuring Tim Holtz).
