Don We Now Our Ugly Sweaters for Clean & Simple

Today's card was created using a sketch from Clean & Simple.  I was playing with my new watercolors and colored these awesome ugly sweaters!  Nothing says Merry Christmas like those sweaters in the closet that come out once a year.

I am still trying to get the hang of the watercolors . . . keeping them even and getting the same coverage over the large areas, while trying to control keeping color out of areas I don't want it.  The green sweater definitely has a bit of texture! 

One more holiday card complete!

  1. This may be one of my favorite Debbie creations (thematically speaking)! My ugly holiday sweaters have taken on new lives as my kids have borrowed them for their Ugly Sweater Soirees! Such a clever card!
