Christmas in July
Here is a Christmas Card using a sponged background with Adirondack Cranberry, SU Apricot Appeal and Ranger Weathered Wood Distress inks, each applied with a sponge dauber over a masked section of the card.
The trees, a stamp from Artemio, were over stamped with SU Mellow Moss and Stazon Olive Green inks, both before and after the upper mask had been removed.
I finally added a few prints of the tree using Encore Ultimate metallic gold ink, inking only the edges of the stamp so that some of the colour beneath would show through.
The sentiment from Penny Black is heat embossed in gold.
I had fun making this one!
