Merry & Bright - Part 2

I used this stamp before for the 12 Days of Christmas. I found another card element in my stash. I had stamped the image on velum and colored with water color crayons. I layered the velum over "pretty in pink" card stock and added brads to the corners.

Winter's not here yet, and I'm already missing the light. The days do start getting longer after the 21st, so maybe I can hold out. But it does make photography tough. The best light in the house right now in in the basement stair well, on top of the handrail post. There is a bright light in the stair way. I balance the project on the post and hope for the best.

I wanted to add some color to the card, so I layered it on my scraf, it wasn't balancing so well, so I used a flat rate priority mailing box and then the scarf and card element. ( Isn't that silly?)

Ha! The things we must do in order to photograph our work! I recently had to string a doll up by her neck and hang her from a pipe in my basement right under a light. Ahhh...I can't wait for the days to get longer again!

I do love what you've done with your image. It has a soft vintage look that reminds me of times gone by.

Love the watercoloring. I know exactly what you mean about low light. They definately didnt like alot of lights in the old days in these old house's that's for sure. You did a great job
