Laughter & Merriment!
If it wasn't for this glittery blue snowflake paper as my inspiration, I don't think I would have put bright red and light blue together on a Christmas card. Actually, I colored the image first and then wondered what I was going to do with it. But, I went to my stack of Christmas papers and found this one! Wa-la! :)
I've colored the image with prismacolor pencils and added some clear glaze on the dots, star and little birdie's wings. I was going to stitch the edge, but decided to do some doodling instead.
In case you're wondering, the stamps are from Hero Arts Clear Design ~ Laughter & Merriment. It's a super cute set and I'll be using it time and again! I saw on another blog yesterday, where someone paper pieced the tree so now I've got to try that too! :)
Have you done any holiday decorating yet? I was only going to put up one tree this year, but having the long weekend and listening to Christmas music must have motivated me because I've now got three trees decorated throughout the house! :) HO HO HO! Smiles, Pam :)
