Sunday for Santa

 A very warm welcome today to the first of my Sunday for Santas creations. The fabulous POPS mentioned on facebook that she was going to be more organised this year for Christmas and that every Sunday she was going to post a Christmas creation. Sundays for Santas group was formed by Pops over on facebook. Well a few of us mad girlies are also going to join in All know who you are.....Gayle....Cathy....

So here we are my first Crimbo card of 2011

Something different from me this time its a kind a scrap type card and I lurvs it. You just have to make sure it fits in your  envelope. My envelope was 6" square so i knew i could go off the edges of the card.
Crafters are the most amazing peeps...I asked  the uber talented and promarker queen Debbi over on facebook about the aqua promarkers and  she sent mme some to try not only that Elaine sent me a message saying she would send me some too OMG you girls are THE best. Now as many of you know I'm loving my watercolouring at the moment well even more now....these are the bees knees i tell you.

I stamped Snow Cosy using versafine black onyx and began to colour i added the colour straight to the watercolour paper however i did find that the collour was very strong. From this point on I scribble the aquamarker onto an acrylic block and the rest is history so they say. Can you believe this was my first attempt with them.....I'm in shock...I truly love them. Not bad for a  first attempt I will practice more with them in the coming week.

I was emailed and asked if I would consider doing a video tutorial  on watercolouring. Yes I will but it will take me sometime and hubby to work it out etc so please bear with me on that one.
I've added a chatbox to my sidebar so you can ask away, I don't mind you emailing though if you prefer.

I have a SECRET............
I will be back later to tell you about my Secret that I have been bursting at the seams to tell.

Whatever you are doing today......enjoy! Ali x
