Christmas in September!

Well yesterday we had Halloween and today it's Christmas - my this year is going fast lol.
One of the projects at PaperArtsy  that really caught my eye was Wanda's Christmas cards. I really like the way she applied the paint so thought I would give it a go. Here's mine.
These are made with the new Lin Brown Limited Edition Paints. I usually have a favourite, but I really can't choose one from this set, they are all gorgeous.
Made with the ELB11. I even dusted down my sewing machine for this one.
The Santa is from Hot Picks 04, and the sentiment from ELB11 again. I couldn't resist a bit of sparkle for his beard.
This is from Christmas HP02, and the sentiment from ELB12
This is from LP016
So there we are, 4 more cards done for Christmas, and I really enjoyed learning this technique, and it's one I shall definitely use again. It's surprising how little paint is needed, I had to mop up far more than I used :-)

Hope you like them, and thanks very much for looking x
