Good morning, friends! Today is the 4th Sunday of Advent and that means we are week away from Christmas. It's time of great excitement ... and extreme fear! Seriously, how many of you are truly prepared?
Don't get me wrong. I love Christmas. I wait for it all year. And when it's finally here... I want to run and hide! Every year I make a list of what to do to make next Christmas less nerve-wrecking. By the end of January they are promptly filed away in a shoebox and there they reside, forgotten and unfulfilled ... until panic strikes again in December. I even managed to lose the shoe box a couple of times!
Enough Gringe-ing, let's look at my latest effort at water colouring. For my last Chocolate Baroque DT post for 2016, I've gone back to the my very first stamp sheet. It's called The Gift Of Christmas and I bought it in October 2012. I stamped the image with VersaFine Smokey Grey and coloured it with Winsor & Newton water colours. The less intense colour of smokey grey ink gives the scene a misty feel, which was what I was going for.
And of course, I could not resist adding glitter and shine of every description! Out came the Stardust Stickles, Icicle Stickles, Perfect Pearls pigment, Nuvo Snow Blizzard and tiny red bling for the tree... and Frosty Flock.

That's all from me today. Thank you for stopping by and I wish you all a blessed 4th Advent of Sunday. Enjoy this most wonderful time of the year.
