Hmmmm... I seem to be having a Whimsycal week

Looking at my cards this week it seems that most of them are using Whimsy Stamps images - totally unintentional, by the way. lol

This card is no exception. It's a DT card for Sentimental Sundays and the theme is Let It Snow.

I am using a rubber stamp by Meljens and digital sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs Christmas Sentiments set.

It started out as a clean and simple card but then something happened (don't ask what) and now it FAR from being clean. Quite simple though.

The image was coloured with watercolour pencils. Don't like it. Maybe because I have no idea what I'm doing, lol

I'd like to enter following challenges:
AiFactory (2 weeks) - holiday / christmas
Moving Along With The Times (3 entries) - lots of spots
Pixie Dust Studio - let it snow
Crafty Creations - beary projects
Paper Pretties - punches
A Spoonful Of Sugar - christmas
Ooh La La Creations (2 weeks) - inspired by a christmas song
Paper Playtime -snowflakes


Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Love your clean and simple! LOL! Like mine I guess!
Watercolour pencils are something I haven't tried but you seem to have done a great job as far as I can see!
You're really experimenting at the moment!
