Christmas Wrapping!

Well, I'd love to be at the stage of already wrapping my presents...but you'd have to have bought them already then right? In my heart I desire to be an early Christmas shopper, done by Dec 1...but in reality it never happens!

The IC challenge over at Splitcoast is some really cute wrapping paper, three different versions. I have this adorable new set that I've been looking at in the catalogue for so long...I think it's so cute and always usuable....it's ready for every season!




The image is stamped on watercolor paper and watercolored with reinkers and SW markers, it's tiny so it's delicate work. I accented the bird's beak and the poinsettia centers with some Gold Zig Painty. I also paper pieced the planter pot with some of the other great papers from this DSP. They are so rich!
Some new ribbon from the Holiday Mini. And I really love how the sentiment banner turned out too. The card looked like it was missing something so I added a line of piercing around the focal image and added Zig Painty as accent...it was the right touch.




Recipe: A Flower for All Seasons, Many Merry Messages Ink: Black Stazon, VersaMark Paper: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Holiday Treasures DSP, Watercolor Paper Accessories: Circle Punches, Ribbon, Gold Brads, Ticket Corner Punch, Dimensionals, Reinkers, SW Markers.
