Hi Friends,
This week Debbie is challenging us to Add Twigs and Branches to our Christmas cards.  I have used this gorgeous twig and berry image from Penny Black. I coloured the stamp with Distress Markers, spritzed it and this is my second stamping on Watercolour card. I then added some extra colour on the Berries with an Aqua Painter and outlined the twigs with a darker marker to add shadow and extra dimension. I added the sweet bird for some extra interest and Water coloured it with the Distress Markers and my Aqua Painter.  I finished off with the Sentiment and the Clear Sequins.

Card: Watercolour, True Thyme, Ruby Red, Very Vanilla
