Christmas Carolers

No, its never too early to do Christmas cards! Splitcoast has a Christmas card challenge and I signed up for it again this yr. Because of everything that went on last yr I didnt do the challenge and when Christmas rolled around I was definitely wishing I had more cards.

For January's challenge I made 10 of these. This set is one of my all-time favorites, I just adore it! When I was back in Colorado I found the musical paper at one of the local stores and instantly thought of this stamp. I took Basic Black and Chocolate Chip and stamped/sponged the paper with it to get an older feel to it. I also did this to the Very Vanilla cardstock the images are stamped on, although I didnt do it as heavy on there. The image itself was stamped in Basic Brown. I didnt want the colored images to be too bright so I used watercolor crayons to get a softer look. When I took the picture the Very Vanilla came out looking brighter than it really is, so thats deceiving

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Christmas Carolers
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, PP by the Paper Studio
Ink: Basic Brown, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black
Accessories: SU Watercolor Crayons, Blender Pen, Watercolor Pencils
