Watercoloured Christmas tree

I love cards made by Dawn Woleslagle - she's such an amazing artist!  I don't have nearly as much patience as she does, though, but I thought I'd give her technique of watercolouring from a stamp a go.
I don't have a wreath stamp like she used in Day 3 of the current Online card class, so I pulled out my Snowy Tree cling stamp from Hero Arts, which I thought would be good for this technique.
Well, it took me a fair amount of time (I don't know exactly how long, as I didn't time myself, but significantly longer than I usually spend on one image), but I am really happy with the result.



 I'll be sharing this card over at Virginia's View for her "All things metallic" challenge.
