Day 13: Caroling Trio

25 Days of Christmas Continues....

Yesterday, I spent much of the day cleaning up the mess that is my craft room/office. As I looked at the huge bin of non-filed scraps, I made a vow that this week I would make my Christmas stamped projects using mostly those scraps. It's never too late to work on those 2009 New Year's resolutions, right?

I pulled out my pizza box filled with wooden Christmas stamps and decided to grab a couple of my favorites and play. I love watercoloring with Penny Black stamps. Today, I decided to use a Technique Junkies technique called marker watercoloring to get that watercolor effect.

Here's what I came up with for today's card which is made up totally of bits and pieces from my scrap pile:

Caroling Trio
Caroling Penguins and sentiment (Penny Black)
Paper: yellow gingham (old Provocraft stack, I think)
Cardstock: red pre-folded card and red cardstock (Michael's); watercolor paper
Ink: Jet Black (StazOn)
Markers: Bravo Burgundy, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron
Tools: Aquapainter (Stampin Up); corner rounder (Creative Memories)
Embellishments: stray red bow with white pearl-like center

I hope you had a day that put a song in your heart!
