I have a Christmas card to share today, featuring one of my oldest (and most favourite) Penny Black stamp, called 'Carolers'. I stamped it on to watercolour paper, then coloured it using watercolour pencils. For the background, I used lots of snippets of paper from the 'Jingle All the Way' pad by First Edition, distressing the edges a little and adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Carolling Chicks' set by Stamping Bella.
