Hi there! It's Kay and I'm here for my 12-Days of Christmas guest spot with Whimsy stamps!

This time I am using a really pretty stamp set from their October release called St. Nicholas by Deb Davis.

For my card today, I stamped the image, sentiment and stars in waterproof black ink, and watercolored it with Distress markers. I also splattered around the images with some of the same colors that I used to paint with. The paper that I used is Master's Touch watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby. 

After everything was dry, I mounted my watercolored panel onto a top folded dark gray card base.

So here goes: Nativity Critters, Puppy's Delivery, and Wanna Build a Snowman. But if you asked me in 10 minutes, my answer might be different. I just love your stamps!

  17. Love the watercolor background, stunning with St Nicholas and the stars done in yellow! Gorgeous!
