12 Days of Christmas Day 8 // We Wish You a Merry Christmas

It’s Day 8 of the #twelvetagsofchristmas and Miss Chipmonk, Mr. Raccoon and I are here to wish you a Merry Christmas! These critters are from the Backyard Party birthday set, but if you know me, you know I love finding new uses for my stamps! The more the merrier :)

I had so much fun making this tag you all! I started out by making a background with indanthrone blue on watercolor paper — LOVE this color so much! If you don’t have this one in your toolbox, I’d recommend indigo — love that color too.

Then when it was dry I added some texture with the Constellation Background. I spattered it with white paint and the background was done.

Next I watercolored the tree and holly from Holiday Characters, then trimmed the tree and holly with droplets! And that was that.

    I especially like the big cheeked squirrel. My grandkids have squirrels that live in their gardens at their apartment complex, and they have named them Phil and Philina. They think that there are just 2 squirrels, but there are many. It is so cute.
