    • Hi, Ingrid. I used some re-inkers and my stamp press and “smooshed” onto some watercolor paper. Yes, I picked some holly from our yard, did a little tracing, then sketching and water-coloring. I have not drawn very much for a long time, but I did enjoy doing it. I’d like to try to draw & paint more. πŸ™‚


  8. So much eye candy… great job.. you were very busy… I love the herd of elephants with the blue background… but the hello miss you friend is so creative.. love how you stretched it all the way to the back of the card.. so fun.. Thank for all the inspiration. xx
