Cardinal Christmas

I am continuing to work on my Christmas cards, having finished my cards for Caring Hearts. This is a digital image but I don't know the source for some reason. I watercoloured using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Zig Brushes then matted with the lavender cardstock, and stamped my sentiment with Intense Black Ink. I am very pleased with how it all turned out.
Thank you for having a look today ...

Love your soft pastel colors for your frame and watercolor wash. They do not take away from your beautifully colored cardinal scene. TFS Kia. Hugs, Nancy

Oh, KIa, I have to agree completely with Ann that this is my favorite Christmas card so far too. It's gorgeous and so beautifully watercolored! Your sense of color for the background is amazing, and I love the lavender base. Stunning card, precious friend! Hugs and giggles! xoxo
