52 Christmas Card Throwdown (April Technique)

 It's the last 52 CCT challenge for April and our host Branka has chosen a Technique theme, which is to highlight stamping. 

I had fun stamping and water-colouring the images with Daniel Smith Watercolours and Zig Markers. 
Santa's Sleigh was fussy-cut. I used some shimmer paint for the snow. If you're wondering about the texture pattern in the sky, it's from paper towel, which was a happy accident:).

I hope you'll visit the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog to see what the rest of the team created with these colours and then be inspired to join in the challenge!

I'm also sharing my card at the following:-
