Season's Greetings

Kathy is hosting her 7th - 30 Day Colouring Challenge over March and I'm eager to  join in as colouring is a main part of my stamped cards which I  so enjoy doing. Today I finished my Christmas card using the Colour Combo at Season's Greetings challenge #2 so I  took a quick photo of my desk ... showing my two card fronts (this year I've been stamping two images as I go and colouring the second when to mood takes me).  I stamped my poinsettia on watercolor paper and ooooh I wasn't too happy as it was very porous and bled everywhere.... but I just persisted figuring I couldn't make it any worse and after the image was finished I decided to 'conceal' the bleeding and added a light pink water colourwash to the background... I'm actually quite happy with it now.  Then I flicked a few spots of pink and stamped on my sentiment....I used Brushos and decided on a pink flower and red berries to use the colour combo option.  To finish I layered the top panel on darker pink and pale pink card.  I am also posting to Jingle Belles challenge - The Holly and the Ivy.... a Christmas foliage card... fits beautifully with my 'pink' Poinsettias.. I love these flowers/leaves.  Thanks for taking a peek
