Joy to the World

Today, I had a little play with my Winsor & Newton water colours, after unwrapping the half pans that I bought last summer...

- A wash of W&N Payne's grey onto W&N water colour cardstock
- A few splatters of the same water colour
- Die cut/inlaid Memory Box snowflake (Twinkling Snowflake Duet, a recent win) from silver glitter paper from my stash
- Sentiment, star and tiny dot stamps from the Snowy Sayings set by CAS-ual Fridays (part of the SOA Christmas collection) stamped in Archival black
- Stitched rectangle die (Bundle of Stitched Shapes by Simon Says Stamp)
- Black cardstock (Crafter's Companion)

Merry Monday - 196 Black, white and grey/silver
Freshly Made Sketches - Sketch 228 (flipped)
CAS Mix Up - Stamping, watercolouring and third element (die cutting, splatter)
Addicted to CAS - 84 Delicate
