25 Days of Christmas: Day 2

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed yesterday's Christmas creation. I'm back again today to share my card for Day 2. As always, I have included a picture and link to Kristina's original card. When CASEing the original cards, I tried very hard to follow the same techniques as well. For instance, in her card she does some water-coloring, so I water-colored my image as well. This image was hard, simply because there are a lot of little spaces and details that have to be colored. Also, when you get used to coloring with markers such as Copics like I have, it's odd to go back and do something as simple as watercolor pencils and aqua painter brushes. Still, I think it turned out pretty well.  The placing of the little circles behind the main image for the scalloped circle edge was a bit challenging as well; but I rose to the challenge! Anyhow, links to supplies are below. All of them except for the stamp image because it is from a set of Christmas stamps I bought at Michael's last year that I can't find a link for anymore. Enjoy the rest of your day and I'll be back tomorrow with Day 3.
