Coloring time with Tombow

Happy Monday everyone! This coming weekend there will be a color splash weekend as my Stampendous teamies and I hop along with TombowUSA's design team. We can't wait to play along so we are having a little fun until it arrives!

Today my card is super quick.

I've wanting to watercolor this Snowflake Sky Rubber Stamp and Christmastide Rubber Stamp stamp together because they are just meant to go together in my book. There are some other fantastic sentiment that would do just as nicely though. Check them out here on the Stampendous website.

I said this was going to easy and it is, let's see just how I made it. After that you can hop on over to the Stampendous blog to get started from the beginning (if you are just now joining us) or hop on to teammie Alison Heikkila for some inspiration.
