Happiest of Holidays - Winnie & Walter

Oh, my goodness.....this fat wintertime kitty looks sooooooooo much like my Ophelia (a boy cat... long story....) who gets so fat in the winter we call him Loaf-elia.  :D
Hi, Friends......

I am here with a watercolor card that I made for the Winnie & Walter November Color Combo Challenge. Look at this wonderful inspiration palette that Heather gave us to work from:

I decided to make a very simple snowy watercolor scene using the emboss resist technique with W&W - Our Town stamp set elements and no embellishments at all. My painting skills are limited, so this was quite a daring endeavor! lol.... But I like how it turned out.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Our Town stamp set
Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Big Bang Confetti stamp set (for a few extra stars)
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts stamp set (for sentiment)
Versamark Ink
Distress Ink in Weathered Wood, Hickory Smoke, Frayed Burlap, Ground Espresso, Stormy Sky, and Faded Jeans
White Sparkle embossing powder
Mixed media paper

Hope you enjoyed my card!! Thank you for stopping by today.
