Holiday Cheer

I stamped Holiday Cheer all over the background with Cajun Craze onto Sahara Sand stamped off once so it would be kind of subtle, then my image ended up being bigger than I thought so you can't see it very well.  Speaking of the image--after I stamped it with Soft Suede I took my water brush and my ink pads and water colored it. For an amateur, I am very pleased with the out come.
