The chicken is from SU Birds of a Feather set as well as the greeting. I found heart stamps in other sets from Gina K Designs, but can’t remember which set I grabbed the hearts from. The row of hearts border is from a Sizzix set designed by Stephanie Bernard that has a lot of hearts on it, but again, don’t have the name handy.

I saw this idea on Pinterest where it had the chicken at the top and red gingham at the bottom. I changed her idea from ribbon to the heart border. My background was so plain, so the hearts were added. I made 5 of these cards total. They will be going to an assisted living center.

This card is also being added to Watercooler Wednesday All About Occasions Challenge. I have been watching this challenge for quite some time, but have never entered or it has been quite a while.

Pearlescent Merry Christmas

I have been playing with Pearlescent watercolor paint. It is quite shiny and has a lot of shimmer when dry. This card will be posted to the Double D Poinsettia challenge and the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.

There was challenge at Splitcoast Stampers to watercolor using black watercolor paper. I wanted to try this, but didn’t want to make the purchase till I decided if I might enjoy the process. I used Hobby Lobby Extra Heavy Weight cardstock, which is at least 100 pounds. It held the watercolor nicely. When the images were all dry, I splattered the front with gold shimmer spray. I like the card and it will be mailed next year.
