Crafter's Companion - Lower Slaughter

Hi! When I looked at the new stamps from the Art Kure line at Crafter's Companion, they just screamed watercolor pencils to me. So I dug mine out, bought a new water pencil and got to work. I really love this one - Lower Slaughter. I love how the buildings are reflected in the water. When I was done coloring, I added iridescent glitter to all the snowy parts. I sprayed the bottom card with gold pearlescent spray and the image with iridescent pearlescent spray. These cards REALLY shine, although I can never get that to photograph well.

I ended up making a set of notecards that I've sent to my husband's grandmother. She loves to send cards and write letters and can't get out as much to buy the nice cards she likes. I'm going to post one of the notecards each day this week.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Craft a Scene #1 - anything goes
2. The Squirrel and the fox #8 - something new
3. Crazy 4 Challenges #118 - something new

Happy Crafting!
