MCV52, OLS29 - Peace, Love, Joy

Here's my card for this week's Muse: ChristmasVisions challenge, where Kimberly gave us this fun, loosely coloured card.

And also for OLS29 - Christmas In July! and for Day 3 of #thedailymarker30day colouring challenge.

My style gravitates to orderly, in-the-lines colouring and I'm always amazed by Kimberly's loose watercolouring and how professional and artistic it looks. This challenge was the perfect time to try something new!

I focused on Kimberly's:
-circular black focal point
-loose watercolouring

I used:
-Stampin Up Festive Flurry
-Essentials By Ellen Cozy Christmas
