Kiss-moose

Hello, happy hump day :) I can't wait for the weekend to get here. My sister and her family are coming up for a visit so it should be a lot of fun! That also means that I probably won't get a lot of crafting done though so I made a card during the week instead.


I think I have a bit of an addiction to stamps that are cutesie :) This little guy is from Paper Smooches Chubby Chum Pals. I stamped him on some water color paper and added his hat and the sentiment first. Then I took three different Christmas light stamps from the same PS set and from a HA Sparkle Borders set and put them on an acrylic block. I used that to randomly stamp around my moose. After all of the stamping was done, I took out my watercolor paints and started painting. (I need lots of practice still.) I was trying out different amounts of water vs paint on my moose and am really happy because I was able to get several shades of brown between two colors just by changing the amount of water! It doesn't take much to make me happy, lol. Once it was dry, I trimmed it down and added it on top of a red panel.

I am sharing this in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love to read your comments if you want to leave any :)
