Mix-Ability Challenge: Holiday Tree Selfie

To count down to Christmas, Lisa from Inchie Arts invited a few designers to contribute to her Twelve Trees of Christmas blog series... I've been wanting to use this Pooh stamp so I watercolored it earlier in the week on a white matboard ATC.

This week's Mix-Ability challenge is to use an image that represents you at Christmas, and I thought this would be a perfect fit. I adore Winnie the Pooh, and this year treated myself to some hard-to-find ornaments to decorate my own tiny Pooh tree. I love the teamwork going on in this image too - so very sweet.

The image is painted with QoR watercolors and a tiny nail art brush. I mounted the ATC on a 4" canvas panel that I had kept near my Gelli Plate while printing - here's another one from the same series. I love these little canvases and they're super cheap to buy in bulk. I sealed the ATC with a spray fixative and then with a coating of MicroGlaze.

One more little detail... I inherited some earrings from my Granny that are beautiful, but I can't wear them because of an allergy. I saved out some focal ones that I thought would make nice additions to my mixed media projects - I used one of those in the side decoration with the florals. I love that! There are a few little snips of burlap ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store in there too. This one's for me.

Here are a few pictures of my little Pooh tree - it's actually a rosemary tree that my husband picked out - so fun!

Have a wonderful weekend! Christmas is coming!
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love this. I can tell there's a warm fire just off to the left out of view. QoR products look very interesting. I love your rosemary tree - i have one too!

  2. I just love this beautifully warm and sweet image and the way you embellished this card is gorgeous. Your grandma's earing looks simply stunning adorning this card.
